Efficient and decentralised generation of energy

Investing to make a positive impact

Sustainable Development Capital LLP (“SDCL”) is a specialist investment firm.

SDCL was established in 2007 and has a proven track record of financing and developing clean energy, energy efficiency and decentralised energy infrastructure projects in the UK, Continental Europe, North America and Asia.

SDCL was launched to facilitate investment into environmental infrastructure markets. It has always focussed on investing in projects that are good for the environment, good for people and commercially sustainable. Indeed, it has always said that “if it is not commercial, it is not sustainable”.

    ‘The Edge’ is a very contemporary look at how the world has been transformed by recent events, focusing on climate change, the war in Ukraine, the next resource flashpoints, and the challenges the world faces around energy, security, the environment and the economy.

    Written from an investor’s perspective from inside the energy industry, it will help businesses and economies apparently at the mercy of the markets to transition towards sustainability, productivity and prosperity, and help everyone understand the world in 2023. In the face of crisis and opportunity, we are at a turning point in history.
