This is how we participate

Precise selection of investments and targeted support

Clever minds. Operationally experienced managers. Courageous, savvy entrepreneurs.

We bear personal responsibility. And reap success together.

Clean & Green invests in early-stage sustainable business ideas. As experienced asset & operations managers, our value-added approach complements the accurate selection of disruptive sustainable business concepts with high growth potential and high chance of success with the targeted technical support of our investments.

Novel sustainable business models

Business concepts of our portfolio companies make better use of our resources, protect our environment and thus have a positive impact on all of us. They contribute to the necessary transformation of our economic & social system. Sustainability goals are realized with the same energy as financial KPIs. We redefine the rules of the game so that our talented, innovative management teams can successfully fine-tune, implement and continuously optimize your business models - financially and from a sustainability perspective. We challenge long-established, common narratives and thus behaviors. Byconsciously transcending today's thought patterns and limiting templates, we open up new spaces for future action towards an orientation towards what is possible.

Our current participation combines polyculture proven over centuries with artificial intelligence.
