Who We Are

What We Do

Climate Smart Ventures is a transition and transaction advisory firm specializing in harnessing the full spectrum of financing to deliver capital market-driven solutions to accelerate the retirement of fossil fuel-fired plants and replace them with renewables in the context of rapidly growing South and Southeast Asia.

Formulating frameworks for decarbonization, such as frameworks for sustainability reporting, sustainable supply chain sourcing, carbon footprint analysis, regulatory compliance, ESG investment, etc.

Establishing policies, processes, and procedures to manage the environmental and social impacts of the company’s operations such as water, waste, energy, and emissions management.

Engaging regulators, utilities, power plant asset owners and crowding-in investors to create enabling environments that prime future transactions.

Analyzing the market conditions and trends relevant to the transactions and providing insights into the competitive landscape.

Reviewing the target company, including a review of financial, operational, legal and regulatory factors.

Assessing the technical and financial feasibility of energy transactions including transitioning coal assets to renewables such as wind, solar, BESS, hydro, hydrogen, as well providing recommendations on value maximizing and high-impact pathways for the client.

End-to-end process which involves negotiating and formalizing the terms of a deal.

Raising capital (debt/equity) from conventional lenders, impact/ESG investors, MDBs, and philanthropies for the company’s energy transition initiatives and ensuring that all parties involved follow through on their obligations.

With an ambitious goal of catalyzing the decarbonization of 2 GW of fossil-fueled power to renewables by 2025, CSV is motivated to meaningfully collaborate with the region’s leading corporates and power portfolio owners, investors, and other enablers to drive the business case for a transition, not later but, today through the activation of deals and the mobilization of transition finance. Together with our partners, we aspire to be a major spark in driving ESG transformation and the commercial scaling of energy transition transactions in Asia at the grid, utility, and commercial & industrial levels.
