 Zero Carbon Fund 

Investing in innovative technologies to accelerate the zero carbon transition.

At a glance
  • Current status:                 Closed (Aug-2020)
  • Fund type:                                                        EIS
  • Investment goal:                     Capital growth
  • Focus:                                                   GreenTech
Zero Carbon Capital seeks to invest in positive action against climate change, gain exposure to a sector that has huge potential, and support early-stage technology companies, with the potential to obtain EIS reliefs. The team is small and passionate and has a laser focus on finding and supporting awesome, visionary entrepreneurs building innovative technologies.
 
Zero Carbon Capital envisions an earth where a good standard of living is enabled for everyone, safely and affordably, with net-zero carbon emissions; reliable electricity, healthy food, comfortable buildings, responsible industry and effective transportation. Their goal is to back entrepreneurs with transformative technologies that will accelerate this vision by eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from the sectors of the economy that are currently hardest to decarbonise.
 
EIS tax incentives
The companies the fund invests in are expected to be EIS-qualifying, which makes Zero Carbon Fund EIS suitable for qualifying clients who would potentially benefit from the following tax reliefs:
  • Up to 30% income tax relief
  • Tax-free investment growth
  • Capital gains deferral
  • Inheritance tax relief
  • Loss relief
Please note: EIS tax reliefs are only made available to investors because of the higher risks associated with investing in early-stage companies. Also, the availability of tax reliefs will depend on the investor's personal circumstances, and tax legislation can change in the future. See guide for further information.

Your attention is drawn to the risk section contained within the Information Memorandum. Investments are typically in unquoted shares in small companies, the value of which can be volatile and are often difficult to sell. Nothing on this website constitutes investment, tax, financial, legal, regulatory, or other advice by Sapphire Capital Partners LLP.
The value of an investment may go down as well as up, and you may not get back the full amount invested, and you may therefore lose some or all of your investment.
If you are unsure of the suitability of any investment for your circumstances, please contact your independent financial advisor or other professional advisor authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA) who specialises in advising on investments of this type. Tax reliefs depend on individual circumstances. There is no guarantee however that the tax reliefs (such as SEIS and/or EIS reliefs, CGT reliefs or IHT relief) will be available on any investment made or that if it is initially available, it will not be subsequently withdrawn. Any references to tax laws or rates are based on current legislation, all of which are subject to change and are provided as a guide only. Prospective investors are advised to obtain their own investment and taxation advice and should consult their own professional advisors on the implications of investing.
