Capricorn Sustainable Chemistry Fund

With the Capricorn Sustainable Chemistry Fund, we capture the growing opportunities emerging from a pressing need for new technologies that will enable us to re-use, recycle or reduce the consumption of natural resources. These technologies significantly reduce the carbon footprint and resource requirements of processes and products and are key to transitioning to a sustainable and ultimately circular economy. Included in this scope are food & feed ingredients, materials and chemical products that have been manufactured from renewable resources and/or through sustainable processes. The Fund focuses on investment opportunities in Europe and North America but will also consider investments in other regions.

The Capricorn Sustainable Chemistry Fund concluded its fundraising in December 2018 with committed capital of € 86.5 million.

Capricorn Sustainable Chemistry Fund is an Article 8 Fund under SFDR: “a Fund which promotes, among other characteristics, environmental or social characteristics, or a combination of those characteristics, provided that the companies in which the investments are made follow good governance practices.”

The Capricorn Cleantech team adds value in developing strategy, in building partnerships, in networking globally across the value chain, and in supporting DMC’s growth.”
