The Carbon Footpath for Achieving Net Zero Today

07 October 2022

Rich Gilmore, CEO of Carbon Growth Partners in Australia talks to Blair McPherson, Head of Capital Introductions at Apex Group, about his career experience managing large-scale investments and how he accidentally stepped into the carbon markets following a personal revelation.

He describes himself as an accidental investment manager; switching from working at an NGO, The Nature Conservancy, where he originated more than $100 million in natural capital impact investments, Rich is now on a mission to deliver ethical, profitable & impactful climate finance to the people and places that need it most.

From starting out with a $10 million investment vehicle in 2021, his firm was blown away by the initial response when it raised over $50 million in just three weeks, and then around the time of the Glasgow Climate Conference (COP21) went on to raise their second $50 million in five days.

In our latest podcast, Rich shares how firms and investors can access the carbon markets and invest in the right combination of emerging market projects and local community initiatives to achieve maximum returns from their impact investments, the current state of the carbon markets now, and exactly what it takes to set out on the right carbon footpath to deliver net zero today.
