Our Mission

to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions, primarily Carbon Dioxide and Methane

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) sources

Methane (CH4) Sources

Focus Areas

NFC is laser focused on 4 verticals

Will Not invest in solar, wind, hydropower, but will deploy capital in energy storage from these sources.

Green Buildings

Responsible building materials & façade, eco friendly interiors, green walls, smart property tech, water efficient systems and waste management.

Energy Storage

Energy storage management solutions, microgrid technologies & services, lithium-ion improvements or alternatives to lithium-ion & long-duration storage solutions.

Climate Smart Agriculture

Precision farming (AI, machine vision, big data, sensors, robotics), plant-based food inputs & cellular meat, new farming methods (vertical farming, hydroponics and aeroponics), flood & drought resistant seeds, agricultural, microbials and forestry.

Alternate Energy

Green Hydrogen - replace fossil fuels in planes, trains, trucks, factories & even in home heating.
Nuclear - Opportunities to build small, advanced nuclear power stations relying on a new source of nuclear energy: a traveling wave reactor (championed by Bill Gates).
