The Biggest, Badest, Greenest Private Equity, Green Venture Capital List in the World

Resources -

Since I starting the blog a month ago, I’ve received a couple requests for information on green private equity companies, green VC, and green angel investors from friends, and colleagues that I went to Babson with.

This list will be valuable for entrepreneurs looking for funding, or those who are interested in ‘green’ investing, financing or consulting.

First, you should know that the word green private equity may or may not hold any water. It will depend on the firm and how they define the word ‘green’. I have done very little vetting of the list.

The list is not separated between private equity and venture capital. You’ll have to do this research on your own. If you find mistake, broken link, a company that a missed, or a company that clearly should be on this list let me know.

Enjoy! The list currently stands at 250 companies.

    Have you seen The Day The Earth Stood Still? Yes it stars Keanu Reeves, barf, but the plot is that aliens come to rid the planet of humans, since the earth is precious and the only downfall of its life is the human race. Erasing us equals a new start for planet earth. There’s a scene with John Cleese where he presents Keanu Reeves with the reality that change happens on the precipice of destruction. Forced and instigated evolution through chaos and demise. Do we need utter despair for true societal change. If so, how do you define rock bottom? I know what Ken Seeley (Intervention) would say… We’re just a bunch of addicts anyway.

    Hmmm interesting point. I fundamentally disagree with the point that human are somehow ‘un-natural’ and that us changing (or some would say destroying the planet) is not correct. Being ‘correct’ is a moral issue and does not deal with nature.

    There are many species that make their own environmental inhospitable for themselves. For example, certain species of lichen or shrubs that grow after a forest fire. These species make their environments places that are fertile for other species but not themselves. They kill themselves.

    It seems that fundamental difference between us and them is not whether we’re natural or not, but that we have feelings.
