Impact Report 2023: From beef without cows to global climate broadcasts

We are happy to announce the release of our 2023 Impact Report, highlighting our investments' impact over the last 24 months. Read on to learn about the seven impactful companies we invest in through our Burning Issues Impact Fund, and understand how we use gender and multispecies lenses to find startups withthe potential to be truly sustainable.
As of the end of 2023, we have made seven impact investments through the Burning Issues Impact Fund, a fund under the exclusive advisory of Chi Impact Capital with the purpose of investing in core-regenerative companies that are solving the most pressing global challenges. The fund focuses on five verticals that ensure a positive impact on our planet: Circular Economy & Conscious Commerce, Green Innovation & Climate Tech, Food Safety & Security, Smart Mobility & Smart Transport, and Care & Affordable Healthcare.
In the Impact Report, we dive deep into the sustainability journeys of these seven companies, highlighting their efforts and celebrating their successes. Some highlights from these efforts include:
  • Mosa Meat, a Dutch company that grows beef using the same processes that build muscle in cows but without the cows, has opened the largest cultivated meat campus in the world to date!
  • Vytal, a German company that develops tech-enabled reusable food packaging solutions, has reduced food packaging waste by more than 6,500,000 packages since our investment!
  • Yasai, a Swiss vertical farming company, saved 10,540 m3 of water compared to what would have been used if their food was grown using traditional farming methods!
  • Neoom, an Austrian company at the forefront of providing decentralized and digitalized energy solutions, installed 151,211 kWh of energy storage since 2019!
  • Farmy, a Swiss online supermarket that allows customers to buy food directly from the producer, saved 118.9kg of CO2e by switching to delivery by electric vehicles!
  • World Data Lab, an Austrian company creating a platform for real-time data forecasts up to 2030, improved 42 Responsible Business Practices in the first half of 2023!
  • We Don’t Have Time, a Swedish company creating the world’s largest communication and review platform for climate solutions, on which you are reading this article, gained 223,000 Agrees on reviews from partners and users in the first half of 2023!

We bring up these highlights because, at CHI, we are more than just investors. When we invest, we do so consciously to build value for people, the planet, and profit at the same time. Before we invest in a company we rigorously analyze their organization and operations to ensure that they match our standards of sustainability. Once we have determined that the company is a fit for us, we apply both gender and multi-species lenses to see the companies from a different perspective, to ensure gender equity as well as consideration for biodiversity and animal welfare in all companies that we invest in.
