Temasek and BlackRock announced that they have agreed to establish a partnership called Decarbonization Partners. The partnership will launch a series of late-stage venture capital and early growth private equity investment funds that will focus on advancing decarbonization solutions to accelerate global efforts to achieve a net-zero economy by 2050.

BlackRock and Temasek intend to commit a combined US$ 600 million in initial capital to invest in multiple funds launched by the partnership. The funds will also raise third-party capital from investors who are committed to achieving a net-zero world while also seeking to obtain long-term sustainable financial returns. Decarbonization Partners has a fundraising target of US$ 1 billion for its first fund, including capital from Temasek and BlackRock.

The Decarbonization Partners funds will deploy private capital with a focus on early-stage growth companies targeting proven, next-generation renewable and mobility technology including emerging fuel sources, grid solutions, battery storage, and electric and autonomous vehicle technologies as well as in building and manufacturing sectors to drive decarbonization, resource efficiencies, material and process innovation.
