Carnot Capital Publishes an Impact Case Study on Belimo

In cooperation with Belimo, Carnot Capital published an Impact Case Study. The focus is on the tangible effects triggered by the Carnot investment process: Which areas are affected by the funds? Where do the portfolio
companies achieve tangible improvements and reduce energy and resource consumption?

Belimo shows how a manufacturer of energy-efficient products passes the financial, ESG and impact analysis test as an example.

Impact investing has long been limited to the topic of microfinance and is now becoming increasingly relevant and important in other asset classes as well. Impact Investing addresses a growing desire of investors and to be accountable for the effects of one's own activities in the world is increasingly part of the strategy process of companies as well. Such an approach goes far beyond a usual ESG analysis.

Belimo is an excellent example of a company whose products make a significant contribution to combating climate change and at the same time yield economic benefits.

Carnot Capital Apéro Event - Panel Discussion on Energy & Resource Efficiency

We held a panel discussion where the entrepreneurial, scientific and financial perspectives on energy and resource efficiency were examined. Thank you TOMRA Systems ASA's Dr. Volker Rehrmann, ETH Zurich's Tobias Schmidt and our own Dr. Andreas Walther for taking part and thank you Volker Varnholt for moderating the panel. It was a pleasure to learn more about sustainability as a business model and which possibilities or 'levers' are available to achieve the big goals in climate policy as well as which tasks the financial sector has as it must finance the upcoming investments.

Some impressions from the event:
