Company Profile

CLT is co-evolving technology, policy and finance to scale low carbon solutions that sustain our planet

To address climate change and develop sustainably, new low carbon innovations need to be successfully commercialised and existing solutions must be rapidly scaled up. At CLT, we believe that technology, policy and finance have to evolve in a coordinated way in order for change to happen at speed and scale.

Since 2006, CLT has worked with hundreds of clean tech entrepreneurs to help them commercialise low carbon technologies. We have supported national and regional governments to create the policy conditions that support clean growth. Increasingly, we are targeting green finance as the third pillar to enable rapid scale-up of transformative solutions.

CLT is committed to ensuring innovations stack up commercially, technically, financially and socially. By delivering public sector programmes and incubation support, and working with companies to innovate and internationalise, we are accelerating the transition to a low carbon, sustainable economy.


Our leadership team positions CLT at the intersection of policy, technology and finance to accelerate innovation and address climate change in ways that make business sense.
