It is my belief that the next 1,000 unicorns – companies that have a market valuation over a Billion dollars – will be businesses developing green hydrogen, green agriculture, green steel and green cement.
Act now, and we can put it right

Increasing World Population (in Billions)
Growing population at such a staggering rate can be seen as the root cause of many problems arising today or threaten to arise in near future. The population is expected to rise by 25% from 7.8 Billion in 2020 to 9.7 Billion in 2050, a rate which is highly unprecedented when compared with survival drivers like arable land, natural resources, etc.
CO2 emissions (K gigatonnes CO2 equivalent/yr)
In the time of crisis, when the world comes at a stop the CO2 emissions goes down (like in 2008 & 2019 Covid), but as soon as things get back to normal, those emissions starts increasing multifold. As we all know, CO2 acts as a greenhouse gas and can absorb & emit infrared radiation. The constant check to keep CO2 emissions at lowest, is one of the major driver in dealing with the climate change.
Per Capita Meat production (Kg/Y)
Production of a single ounce of meat requires significant amount of natural resources and also has to handle the methane gas emission from Cows (20% of total methane gas emission). Reduced per capita meat production, between 2018 & 2020, a decline of about 5.7% was likely because of an outbreak of African swine fever in China that reduced the pork supply.
Ruminant Livestock Numbers (billion individuals)
Never have we seen the world ruminant livestock numbers soaring past 4 billion, which represents much more mass than all human and animals combined. We can agree that although these are important source of protein & livelihood, but they are also a significant contributor to environmental challenges like methane and CO2 emissions, deforestation & water usage.
Global Monthly Mean CH4 (CH4 ppb)
One of the most dangerous GHG, Methane, set new year-to-date records for atmospheric concentration for years 2020 and 2021. Methane traps 86 times more heat in the atmosphere that CO2 and 20% of planet warning can be contributed to Methane. All five of the hottest years on record has happened since 2015, which shows the direct relation between the earth's temperature & GHGs.
Global tree cover loss (MHa/Y)
World lost 1.6 million hectares of undisturbed forest land last year (2020), up 7% of 2019, according to the Global Forest Watch. Losses in the tropics have now increased for two years in a row, driven mostly by forest clearance for agriculture. The EU and UK government are considering using trade deals and regulations to apply pressure on countries such as Brazil (most forest loss in 2019-2020) to curb deforestation.
Energy Consumption (Exajoules/yr)
Fossil fuel energy consumption has decreased since 2019 (COVID-19). However, these declines appear to be transient and projected to rise again from 2021. Conversely, solar and wind power consumption increased by 57% from 2018 to 2021, but it's still 19 times lower than fossil fuel. Although we can see the increasing trend in Solar/Wind energy, the rate of increase for other conventional fossil fuels energy sources is comparatively higher.
Imagining a sustainable world must imply a change in the way we associate ourselves with it.
Our ecosystem is changing at a staggering rate, and it needs more than just discontent and good wishes. Increasing population, increasing Greenhouse gas emissions, decreasing food resources are some of the red alarms that should be enough to make us realize the behemoth challenge we are up against.
We here, at Newtree Impact, inspire to fight those challenges by involving everyone and equipping everyone with knowledge and resources.
We aim to make impact investing accessible to everyone, and at the same time maintaining our authenticity & integrity in the long-term, keeping the administrative / management fees to the lowest.
Our mission: To fight Climate change with the Agri-Food revolution.
We invest in disruptive and encouraging Agri-Food tech and Food Loss companies, reshaping our food systems in order to solve the current & future problems of production, utilization, and consumption of food resources through advanced technologies, not easily replaceable.
Focused investing with a purpose
We focus on sub-sectors in Agri-Food tech & Food Loss with high upside potential and sort our investment opportunities based on strict IRIS + metrics, SDGs, and the in-house Impact Scorecard.
Higher return with Minimal fee
We are determined to maximize the returns received by our investors. Hence, keeping the administrative fees at lowest possible with a cap of 1.75%, our investors are bound to achieve maximum return compared to a traditional investments with similar structure.
Impact investing accessible to everyone
We are already a publicly traded holding structure, which would give power to people with small capital as well to be a part of tomorrow’s bigger impact.
This is one industry that everybody needs. Everybody eats. So, changes that improve productivity for a relatively small number of farmers will scale to help everyone.
