Commited to being carbon negative and playing a significant role in making circular urban economies feasible
Urban Gateway is committed to achieving a meaningful and demonstrable impact on climate change. Given the vast market opportunity in the climate impact energy and urban infrastructure space in Asia Pacific, we believe such a goal is fully synergistic with achieving strong investment performance that can outperform public markets.
Urban Gateway’s initial investments have initially focused on commercializing in Greater China, given our team’s geographical presence and deep networks and expertise to operate quickly and effectively, and given the outsized economies of scale achievable in this geography alone. Likewise, the potential for climate impact in Greater China is huge. In fact, it is commonly understood that there will be no global climate action success without China participation.
Also worth noting is that China’s government has set ambitious national climate action goals for the coming decades. The Chinese government’s ambitions and support for achieving these goals is a tailwind for Urban Gateway’s strategy, for both our investment and climate impact goals.
Urban Gateway is in the process of formalizing its climate impact reporting and its policies and procedures for ensuring responsible environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices with Urban Gateway and the portfolio companies in which we invest.
