The ESG space continues to be on every companies lips for 2023 and as a result a whole ecosystem continues you to grow in order to support companies goals. We have seen a continuous increase in funding being injected into Sustainable tech vendors, which also increases the demand for hiring and expanding current teams.
Climate tech investment as a proportion of total investment has increased from just over 3% in 2017 up to 16.88% in 2022.
At Osmii, we support not only the consultancies building ESG capability, but also climate/green tech businesses to grow across EMEA. Helping the Tech for good effort has gained huge momentum in our business and 2023 we are investing further.
