Global Environment Fund (GEF)

Global Environment Fund (GEF) is a global alternative asset manager established in 1990 to invest in high-growth clean energy, energy and resource efficiency, environmental, and sustainable natural resource management industries throughout the world. Its investments finance innovative businesses that deploy proven technologies, products and services that incrementally make the world economy run with less energy, utilize fewer raw materials, promote improved environmental quality and more efficient use of natural resources. The business models of such companies “lighten the footprint” of traditional industries by delivering tangible reductions in energy consumption, environmental and greenhouse gas emissions, or by making the economy more environmentally sustainable. In addition, the technologies employed by its businesses may address and reduce key environmental safety and security threats. To date, GEF has invested approximately $1.0 billion in companies operating in these sectors worldwide, both directly from its own balance sheet and through the investment funds it manages.
