Recycling & Renewables
The move to a net-zero-carbon environment has led to an explosion of firms which support recycling, clean energy, electric vehicles and energy management. Traditionally, carbon-dependent businesses led the way with cheap (using an economic measure) fuel, but the unit cost of renewable alternatives is becoming increasingly competitive, especially since the price increases in those carbon fuelssince 2022. Consequently, many governments are now investing heavily into renewables projects.
The recycling industry is big business playing a crucial role in managing waste, conserving natural resources, and reducing environmental impact. It involves the collection, processing, and transformation of waste materials into new products, which can be sold for profit or reused in production processes elsewhere.
Firms with scalable solutions which can demonstrate to the end user the levels of energy and carbon being saved are raising significant expansion capital and are very attractive to multinationals, with tech-enabled business carrying the highest premium.
