WHAT WE FUND

LWARB invests in businesses developing innovative technologies or services in London which meet the Mayor of London’s environmental and waste strategies, and support the transition towards London becoming a circular city. These are likely to include the following business models:

  • Those using renewable inputs – shifting to use of renewable energy or secondary materials in the input process;
  • Those that recover value at the end of product life through biological or technical recycling;
  • Those that prolong product life through smart design, use of data analytics, remanufacture and maintenance;
  • Those operating in the sharing economy i.e. sharing assets such as cars, rooms, machinery;
  • Those selling products as services – selling access to products whilst retaining ownership, or dematerialising products (e.g. books or on-line shopping).
