General Atlantic closes inaugural climate solutions fund at $3.5bn

Growth equity firm General Atlantic has held the final close of its inaugural BeyondNetZero fund. Following the fund’s close, General Atlantic has a total of approximately $3.5 billion in capital to invest in climate solutions.

BeyondNetZero’s first fund brings together capital from investors at the forefront of climate investing, including several strategic investors, sovereign wealth funds, family offices, multinational corporations and global institutional investors. 

The BeyondNetZero fund is structured as a companion fund investing in climate growth equity companies alongside General Atlantic’s core global growth equity program. General Atlantic’s core program will generally contribute 25% of capital to each climate investment that meets this mandate.
General Atlantic launched BeyondNetZero in July 2021 as the firm’s dedicated climate investment effort, designed to capture the rapidly growing opportunity for growth equity in the climate space. The initiative combines the industrial expertise, investing experience and network of a seasoned team with the growth equity capabilities and global reach of General Atlantic to provide a unique offering to climate entrepreneurs and investors alike.
