Inspired by the Project Drawdown and the EU Green Taxonomy, iClima Earth has identified five segments that effectively combine and reflect a wide spectrum of climate change solutions. The companies in Clima’s universe provide solutions across the following segments: Green Energy, Green Transportation, Water & Waste Improvements, Enabling Solutions and Sustainable Products.
These five broader themes were further broken down into 29 sub-segments. The solutions in these sub-segments directly help the avoidance of GHG emissions, enable direct reduction of GHG emissions, improvements in energy efficiency, and/or contribute to carbon sequestration.
Companies in the Green Energy segment provide or enable renewable energy generation from solar, wind, hydro, ocean, tide, and geothermal sources. Renewable energy generation is a climate change mitigation solution that contributes directly to the reduction of fossil fuel energy generation and GHG emissions.
Companies in the Green Transportation segment focus on the climate change solutions that enable reduction of GHG emissions from fossil fuel combustion in Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles. Also, companies in public transportation that enable a modal shift from ownership and usage of private ICE vehicles.
Companies in the Water & Waste Improvements segment provide water and waste management services that enable energy saving, sustainable treatment of waste and avoidance of landfill GHG emissions from decomposition.
Companies in the Enabling Solutions segment cover a wide range of solutions that indirectly enable reduction of GHG emissions from energy generation, combustion in ICE vehicles, and operation of buildings and industrial processes.
The Sustainable Products segments covers companies that offer products from sustainable raw materials, products that enable reduction of GHG emissions in the production stage, use phase and/or end of life phase.
