Aviva, the UK’s leading insurer, today announces a commitment to invest £50m1 into venture capital funds focused on emerging technology which supports a more sustainable future.
The commitment follows Aviva’s announcement earlier this year to become a Net Zero carbon emissions company by 2040, the first major insurance company in the world to do so. The new investments into funds with a specific sustainability focus will directly support Aviva’s strategic ambition to contribute to a sustainable economic recovery.
The first investment, announced today, is into the Clean Growth Fund. Launched in 2020, the Clean Growth Fund invests in promising early-stage UK clean technology companies, with products and services focussed on driving clean growth in the low carbon economy. It aims to accelerate the commercialisation of clean growth technologies, create new employment opportunities across the UK and contribute to the UK’s efforts to deliver net zero by 2050. The fund has invested in companies such as Indra, which manufactures and supplies smart electric vehicle chargers, and tepeo, which invented a zero-emission boiler.Source: Aviva
