General Atlantic

Profile

Established in 2021, BnZ combines General Atlantic’s significant expertise in growth equity with a dedicated, senior team of climate investors, advisors and industry experts, including Lord Browne of Madingley. The team will seek to identify entrepreneurs who are addressing climate-focused problems and help them scale.

BnZ’s strategy focuses on four central themes:

1. Decarbonization – of supply chains, industrial processes and products
2. Energy efficiency – solutions that contribute to energy efficiency and conservation
3. Resource conservation – reducing waste and the resource-intensity of economic activity
4. Emissions management – measurement, management, storage and removal of emissions

As with all of General Atlantic’s ventures, BnZ targets high-quality, growth equity investments. We seek to identify entrepreneurs with established technologies poised to be deployed at the commercial stage, as well as those offering solutions for companies that are looking to pivot away from unsustainable models.

Underpinning BnZ’s approach is an exclusive strategic partnership with SystemIQ, an independent consultancy, think tank and investment firm. BnZ is working with SystemIQ to develop a proprietary approach to measuring, reporting and driving emissions reductions that is driven by data and aligned with the Science Based Targets Initiative. Through this partnership, we are developing a robust, market-leading approach to assessing investments’ potential for emissions reductions, which will be a central component of the evaluation process for potential investments.
