Portfolio Alignment Framework

The Portfolio Alignment Framework is the first of three venture-specific net zero frameworks that allow VCs to set targets and report on the percentage of their portfolio that is “managed in alignment with net zero.”

For investors that regularly take board seats, this framework leverages the hands-on nature of venture investing to encourage portfolio companies to adopt net zero practices as they mature and scale.



Our knowledge base aims to provide quick answers to your most pressing questions.
