The creator of the world’s first climate bond, the ex-CEO of a FTSE250’s global clean energy business, and the ex-CEO of one of Europe’s leading financial services trade associations, have launched of a new global climate-focused capital raising and strategic consultancy business, called Climate Solutions.

Headquartered in London, Climate Solutions connects institutional investors with equity, debt and project finance investment opportunities that accelerate climate action in one or more of its five investment themes of energy transition, sustainable agriculture, net zero real estate, water solutions and the circular economy. It is primarily focused on businesses seeking to raise USD100 million or more of capital.
 
Having already been approached for support by well over 200 companies from their extensive global network, co-founders Paul Camp, Bob MacDonald and Simon Puleston Jones are in the process of closing mandates for a range of opportunities across solar, battery storage, hydrogen, waste-to-energy, vertical farming, net zero real estate and electric vehicles.
 
CEO Simon Puleston Jones says: “Our highly experienced and well-connected team is uniquely placed to bridge the gap between those with the money and those with the solutions. Climate Solutions will orchestrate markets to empower the global scale up of a diverse range of sustainable climate solutions, at scale and pace. Clients are choosing us because, in contrast to many of our peers, we’re as expert in the technologies and projects relating to climate solutions as we are in financial markets.”
 
To maximise its ability to successfully execute at scale and pace, Climate Solutions is establishing a collaborative global network of dealflow introducers, due diligence experts, distributors, investors and solutions providers.
 
Puleston Jones adds: “When putting in place distribution agreements with leading investment banks, they tell us that we’re pushing against an open door, such is the demand from them and their clients for climate-focused investment opportunities to meet their ESG and impact investment goals.”
