iClima looks for the companies that prevent damaging emissions from ever being made

We go deep on research to find the innovations and technologies that can solve climate change

Our methodology uses quantifiable and tangible metrics, not scorecards

Our innovative equity indices represent a comprehensive and unique set of companies with disruptive solutions


What makes iClima Unique

We look for the companies that can decarbonise the planet. We believe the best way to reduce carbon in the atmosphere is by not emitting in the first place. We use Potential Avoided Emissions as our key metric.

Our investing process


We triangulate the findings of scientific studies with regulatory definitions of green products & services, and the concept of CO2e Avoided Emissions


We created our data base from scratch. It took us over 18 months to gather and analyse raw data, public information and company filings


We negatively screen for certain activities, like coal and nuclear energy. We apply UN Global Compact indicators for a holistic approach to ESG

We have created unique equity indices, more to come - stay tuned

What they say about us

“I am delighted to see iClima bringing a change in narrative to the green investments space. Like iClima, I agree that decarbonisation is our top priority and represents a key financial risk if it is not tackled.

The fact that iClima focuses on CO2 avoidance, and calculates this figure as a tangible metric, is a meaningful way to discuss climate solutions and which in turn enables a more informed investment analysis. The climate crisis is the greatest threat we face today, and it is heartening to see a data-based new way of looking at how investors can contribute to the solution.”

Michael Hayes, KPMG Global Head of Renewables

What they said to us

“Corporations should be investing routinely in sustainable practices; banks and investors should look for green projects and companies to build their portfolios; governments and other public institutions must align their efforts with roadmaps towards net zero.”

Barbara Buchner, Head of Climate Policy Initiative

What they say about us

"iClima’s framing is spot on. The idea of investing in companies whose P&L is aligned to change that is coming is much stronger than using carrots and sticks to drag existing companies toward change. I love their picks and shovels analogy. A financial product that focuses on companies enabling CO2 avoidance (selling shovels) hits the nail on the head."

Jim Wiandt, Founder of ETF.com and CEO of SparkNetwork.com

What they said to us

“The experience of the last few months, which have demonstrated around the world that solar and wind can provide the majority of electricity with no significant stability problems, should give us new confidence that a 100% renewables future, backed by batteries and hydrogen is not only possible, but deeply desirable from a financial as well as environmental point of view.”

Chris Goodall, Author of “Ten Technologies to Save the Planet” and “The Switch”
