World Fund is a European VC investing in tech startups with the highest climate performance potential (CPP) because those companies will be the most valuable of the next decade. Their first question with regard to possible investments will always be: Can that tech solution save at least 100 megatons of CO2-equivalents in emissions per year? World Fund invests in the early and growth stages, looking at sectors such as energy (including manufacturing, construction, transportation), food, agriculture and land use.

More than half of humanity is currently living in cities – with numbers growing. If cities were the living space of the future – wouldn’t it be nice to integrate nature?
Air is our most important resource within the cities; however it is often so polluted, that breathing will actually harm our health. Green City Solutions is working on a future, in which fresh air in urban areas is available to everyone. For that reason, they have developed the world’s first bio-tech filter for quantifiably better air quality: The CityTree.
