Building a low carbon future
FullCycle is an investment firm that delivers outsized financial returns by fulfilling an unmet need in the mobilization against climate change. We invest to scale market-ready technologies, which dramatically reduce the short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) that disproportionately contribute to global warming.
FullCycle was selected as an ImpactAssets50 2020 Emerging Impact Fund Manager; it is a signatory of the International Finance Corporation Operating Principles for Impact Management and the United Nations Business Ambition for 1.5C Pledge.
In 2019, the company established the first-ever, public-private partnership to support engagement in anticipation of the 2019 Climate Action Summit, where FullCycle announced a commitment of $100 million toward climate-restoring technologies by 2021. In 2018, FullCycle made its flagship investment in Synova, which is reinventing waste to value to build a cleaner world.
We aim to accelerate the deployment of climate solutions at scale.
Our investments accelerate the deployment of transformative infrastructure projects.
We focus on commercially-viable technologies that have the largest climate impact per dollar invested, and will maximize returns.
While each investment starts with a portfolio company, the majority of our capital will be invested in projects that are ready to deploy at a large scale.
We take significant ownership in our portfolio companies and arrange right-of-first-refusal agreements on their project pipelines. This enables us to rapidly deploy infrastructure solutions while providing investors with access to exclusive revenue opportunities.
Platform companies must demonstrate robust product pipelines sufficient to reach global scale in the near-term and that their projects have the potential to have a material impact on the global environment when deployed at scale.
Synova has developed a cost effective, closed loop system that converts all types of trash – including plastic – into clean energy, fuel, high-value chemicals, or virgin plastic feedstock, without fossil fuels.
Synova's technology is disruptive in the developed world and the first to fulfill a huge unmet need in the developing world.
