Tikehau Capital is to launch a private equity fund in North America dedicated to the transition to a low-carbon economy.
With an initial commitment of dollars 300 million the Tikehau Capital decarbonization fund will provide equity to companies engaged in the energy transition sector in North America including companies contributing to reduced energy consumption, the increase in the supply of renewable energy and those developing low-carbon mobility and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Mathieu Chabran, co-founder of Tikehau Capital, says, “At Tikehau Capital, we believe that investors have a responsibility to contribute directly to global efforts to achieve carbon neutrality goals. With the success of our T2 Energy Transition fund, our impact debt fund or our recent issuance of sustainable bonds worth 500 million euros, we have established ourselves as one of the leaders in the field of energy impact and transition. Today, we are pleased to further expand our offering with the upcoming launch of this decarbonization fund for North America, which will help further accelerate investment to achieve carbon neutrality as the United States re-commits to the Paris Climate Agreement.
