Investment Strategy

GEF Capital seeks to invest in operating businesses where our capital can support both actual or expected revenue and earnings growth while also catalyzing a positive environmental impact.  Over the tenure of our firm and previously while we were employees of Global Environment Fund, we have developed relationships and experience in certain sectors and industries that we believe align strongly with our dual goals. These include operating companies that enable clean energy or improve energy efficiency, that are reducing the amount of waste we generate or water we use, that build products using less or more efficient materials, or that take action to improve the quality and conservation of our land.
 
To generate the financial returns that we seek, we apply the core pillars of private equity investing:
