Investment criteria Nysnø Climate Investments
Nysnø is on the lookout for robust and well-managed companies with a clear plan for the development of climate friendly technology and solutions.
We undertake thorough analyses of the company, technology, market and competitors before we invest. Nysnø has long-term capital and can support companies through all stages of development. We acknowledge that it may take time for the true value of a company to be reflected in its market price. Primarily, we will be investing in the company’s growth phase, during scale-up and commercialisation. Nysnø may further invest in funds that contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions through their investments.
