“In Central and Eastern Europe, sustainability goals have also become security goals. We have even more motivation to work toward the goals set out by the European Green Deal: reducing CO2 emissions by at least 55% by 2030, and achieving climate neutrality by 2050. Net zero obligations and the need for energy independence and security will not be met by business as usual. One of the most exciting ways of making progress is to scale up the impact of climate tech solutions – and to match investor funding with climate tech entrepreneurs.” said Agnieszka Gajewska, ESG Leader at PwC CEE.

Climate tech investment in Central and Eastern Europe has grown 50x in past 8 years but funding gaps remain, finds new report by PwC and Wolves Summit

Climate tech investments in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) are rising rapidly, from US$10.6m in 2013 to US$398m in 2020, and over US$502m in the first half of 2021 alone. More than US$1.758 bn has been invested in climate tech in CEE between 2013 and the first half of 2021. The CEE region contributes to approximately 3.73% of all GHG emissions, but currently attracts only 0.79% of global climate tech investment. Mobility start-ups attract the most climate tech funding in CEE with 54.4% of the total in the last year. Start-ups in Estonia and Lithuania raised 83% of total climate tech investment in the region. Despite being the largest economy, Poland has raised only 4.65% of total climate tech funding in CEE between 2013 and the first half of 2021. Energy sector start-ups only attracted 1.29% of total CEE climate tech funding during the same period. The CEE edition of PwC’s Net Zero Future50 report, produced in partnership with Wolves Summit, presents the state of climate tech investments in 27 countries across the region and profiles a selection of 50 innovative start-ups working in this sector.
