Barka is promoting sustainable growth through investment in resource-efficient companies across sectors that lend themselves to climate impact, namely Agriculture & Food Systems, Environment & Natural Resources and Energy sectors.
We leverage capital to support and invest in entrepreneurs that are delivering solutions to improve climate and environmental impact and promote sustainable use of natural resources.
Before the investment, Barka evaluates the current impact as well as the potential impact of startups to determine their impactability.
Barka has developed a rigorous methodology to measure and monitor the impacts of our investments:
Barka works with founders to produce a customized impact action plan that contains impact metrics such as impact on land restoration, food security or energy efficiency measures.
Barka reviews the impact performance of investees, using our proprietary information management systems.
Barka issues impact reports annually.
Barka believes that identifying and investing in startups that can help manage drought, floods, supply chain disruptions, diseases and other climate impact challenges is critical to building resilience to climate change.
