TAF is a leader in impact investing. We specialize in demonstrating and accelerating the high investment quality of low-carbon solutions.
As recent carbonstones show, we don’t need to trade profit for environmental protection.
Primary investment criteria
Big carbon reduction
We calculate the potential carbon emission reduction to see if it hits our target of 500,000 tonnes over 20 years within the total addressable market.
We focus on projects and enterprises centred on energy production, energy storage, and energy efficiency in the building and transportation sectors.
Potential benefit for GTHA
Our investments must help the region, but that doesn’t mean the companies we invest in have to be located there.
Third-party verified. Field tested. Technologies proven outside of North America are fine.
We are a market-rate funder and investor.
Scalable business opportunities
We’re excited by catalytic investments.
We invest up to $2 million – which, if we’re investing in a project, would be 20% of a $10 million opportunity. If conditions are right, we are comfortable with co-investing in bigger opportunities.
We invest with others
Investing with others enables us to invest in larger transactions, which can accelerate scalability.
In addition to investing, we help our investments succeed by addressing policy, information, financing and other barriers to commercialization. We do this by providing grants to non-profits and by advocating for policy changes.
We can be flexible and innovative with financing structures. We’ll design facilities that work best for an investee’s needs, including quasi-equity and performance contracts.
We expect to make follow-on investments where possible, at project or enterprise level.
