350 PPM identifies Companies, Projects and Technologies that it believes will benefit substantially from the implementation of The Paris Agreement; the new global treaty to combat climate change. 350 PPM structures these opportunities under the UK’s Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS). See EIS tax benefits.
350 PPM works with, and raises finance for, businesses along the full commercialisation runway to ensure they reach their true potential. This runway consists of 4 financing stages: Incubation (via EIS), Expansion (via EIS), Venture Capital (via VC’s, Family Offices, Institutional Investors), and Listing (via NOMAD partners).

The Paris Agreement
The Paris Agreement is a global agreement to keep average global temperatures within 2 degrees of pre-industrial times.
As Carbon Dioxide levels and temperatures are roughly linear (at current levels), this equates to 450 Parts of CO2 Per Million Parts of Air. This is well above the highest recommended level of 350 Parts per Million (PPM). We are at 403 PPM now and increasing at 3 PPM per annum. Source: NASA: http://climate.nasa.gov/
In order to achieve the environmental objectives of The Paris Agreement whilst still attaining high levels of global GDP growth, and as the developing world industrialises, a much higher percentage of renewable energy needs to be used to generate the power we require. The IEA estimates the world energy demand will grow 70% by 2040. International Energy Agency, World Energy Outlook 2015 Fact Sheet, Third Paragraph: http://www.worldenergyoutlook.org/media/weowebsite/2015/WEO2015_Factsheets.pdf.
The IEA estimates to achieve the objectives of the Paris agreement, global investment in renewables needs to increase by $36 trillion above the base case scenario between 2016 and 2050. Based on an immediate increase in green investments, breakeven should be achieved by at 2025, and by 2050, $100 Trillion will have been saved in fossil fuel input costs.

Sir Nicholas Stern, estimates that not combatting climate change, will lead to losses in global GDP of between 5 and 20% based on a number of factors the most significant of which are breakdowns in supply chains and loss of land mass and housing.

The following table details the increases in installed capacity (Gigawatts) of the main renewable energy generating technologies based on the requirements of The Paris Agreements as defined by the International Energy Agency.

This extrapolation of renewable energy technology deployment demonstrates the vast scale of green investments required to meet The Paris Agreement’s environmental objectives and at the same time the power requirements of the world.
