Carbon dioxide continues to be the primary source of greenhouse gas emissions contributing to the global climate crisis, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change identifies carbon dioxide removal as critical to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. To mitigate the impact of these emissions and support the move toward net zero, Mercy Investment Services’ Environmental Solutions Fund invests in technology that captures carbon dioxide (CO2) before it is released into the atmosphere.
- Carbon America is a project developer encompassing carbon capture technology, logistics, site selection and infrastructure such as permits and financing. It is developing technology to capture CO2 emissions at the source in high-polluting industries including steel and cement.
- Carbon Clean Solutions designs, builds and operates cost-effective industrial carbon capture solutions for industries such as cement, steel, refineries, energy from waste, and biogas. Its out-of-the-box modular technology, deployed to 49 sites globally, has captured more than 1.8m tonnes of CO2. The UK-based company recently expanded into the United States, which it expects to become its largest market.
- Carbonfree Chemical Holdings’ technologies capture and transform CO2 emissions into carbon-negative chemicals including baking soda, precipitated calcium carbonate and hydrochloric acid.
Through the Environmental Solutions Fund, Mercy Investment Services continues to invest in innovative solutions such as these to support positive environmental outcomes. Learn more about some of these investments and their impact.
