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 climate critical infrastructure.
We only invest in companies and project assets that produce market returns (or better) for their respective asset classes. Compelling financial returns are the best way to mobilize the private capital needed to address the climate crisis.
We maximize measurable climate impact with every dollar we invest. Companies must demonstrate their technologies have material, capital efficient impact on climate at full deployment: a gigaton CO2(e) abatement/year.
Because the climate crisis is a race against time, we invest in technologies that are “six continent solutions,” meaning wide applicability across regions. We invest in technologies that have proven efficacy and are poised for commercialization.
We only engage in opportunities where we can secure rights to invest in the project assets of platform companies on a fixed, preferential basis, typically a Right of First Refusal (ROFR), negotiated in connection with our investment in the platform company itself.
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.
