Climate Change Capital is a private asset management and advisory group founded in 2003 by Lionel Fretz and James Cameron to support efforts to develop solutions to climate change and resource depletion.


The company established an advisory group in 2004 to provide financial, strategic and policy advice to energy-intensive industries, financial institutions, cleantech companies and governments.[citation needed]

The asset management business, which was established in 2005, includes a carbon finance fund that invests in emission reduction projects, predominantly in developing countries, a private equity fund that invests in late stage technology and services companies headquartered in Europe[1] and a property fund that buys commercial green buildings or retrofits existing commercial properties in the United Kingdom.[citation needed]

The company's think tank was established in 2009 to promote discussion of how capital can be deployed to mitigate and adapt to climate change.

In 2006, the group launched the world's largest private sector carbon fund.[2]


In April 2012, Bunge Ltd, a global agribusiness and food company founded in 1818, acquired Climate Change Capital Group Limited.[3]
