- THE PROBLEM - 


The way our food is produced today is unsustainable. 

It contributes to planet degradation and global warming. 



Intensive farming, meat production, deforestation, food waste and food supply chain mismanagement are contributing to global warming. 

  • Over 25% of the greenhouse gas emissions are coming from our food system
  • Common agricultural practices contribute to deforestation, soil degradation and endanger biodiversity
 
With global development and a growing population with a higher protein diet, we'll need to produce more food with far fewer resources. Half of the planet's habitable land is already used for agriculture. If the temperature rise exceeds 1.5°C, part of our planet will be unlivable.

There is a pressing need for change, and Newtree Impact sees a huge opportunity to disrupt today's food system with more sustainable and resources-effective practices.


- THE SOLUTION -


Newtree Impact invest in agriculture and food technology companies to fight climate change.


Disruption comes from challenging the status quo and that is precisely what is happening within the global startup ecosystem. Many innovations and technologies are emerging to bring tangible solutions to the fight against global warming. Historical industry giants are investing billions in these advancements, indicating the growing importance of this movement.

Newtree Impact invests in solutions including: 
  • Ingredient replacement
  • Efficiency enhancement
  • Waste reduction
  • Soil pollution mitigation

Since 2021, the team has embarked on a journey that promises lasting and profitable results, benefiting both the planet and their investors. To date Newtree Impact has already invested directly in 17 entities in the agri-food tech industry. They maintain close relationships with its portfolio companies, offering help and support whenever needed.



- THE VISION -


On a mission to invest in disruptive solutions to fight climate change


Beyond ESG mitigation, Newtree Impact invests in climate change solutions. With its open holding structure, Newtree Impact operates for its own account. This means it's not constrained to exit investments within a specific timeframe, crucial for impact, as some companies require more than the typical 8-year fund period to generate tangible environmental benefits.

 


 

- ABOUT "CROWDLISTING" -


Opening doors to impact investing to a larger investment community


Food sustainability and climate change are issues that impact everyone. This is why it makes so much sense for Newtree Impact to open its capital to a broader audience. By adopting an evergreen structure and now launching this “crowdlisting” campaign, Newtree Impact is fulfilling one of its main missions which is to democratize impact investment as stipulated in its company bylaws.

To find out more about crowdlisting and why it's more attractive to investors, click here.

Today, it is very difficult and risky for most people to put their savings to work for impact:
  • Access to specialized funds requires very high minimum investments (exceeding €100,000), making them inaccessible to the majority. 
  • Investing in startups through crowdfunding platforms is locked in for several years. It offers little diversification, making it very risky.

With Newtree Impact: 
  • You can now invest from €1,450 in a highly diversified portfolio. 
  • You will have the freedom to trade your shares whenever you want. They will be available in your securities account at the bank of your choice and listed on the Euronext Access market.

Newtree Impact aims to inspire to play an active role in reshaping our future and change the course of human trajectory, and they want all of us to be a part of it. 



- THE PORTFOLIO COMPANIES -


Offering a diversified portfolio of disruptive companies 


Newtree Impact's dual investment approach, targeting both funds and companies across various stages of development, affords them a comprehensive perspective on the Agri-Food Tech industry. This strategy grants them unparalleled expertise and a robust network within the sector, enriching their understanding and enhancing their ability to identify promising opportunities.

Here is the current breakdown of their portfolio between the 3 food technology industries:




  • Food tech (70%): Food tech is vital within the $8.05 trillion food industry, crucial for human survival. It merges biochemistry, genetics, food engineering, and more to innovate and improve food supply chains, develop alternative proteins, and introduce new ingredients. These innovations help address the demands of urbanization and lifestyle shifts, aiming for sustainable food solutions for growing populations and environmental issues.

  • Agri tech (25%): Agri tech uses technology to boost agricultural efficiency, productivity, and sustainability. Techniques include enhancing soil and air quality, optimizing animal feeds, and increasing food production in limited spaces while focusing on carbon offsetting. These advancements tackle issues such as greenhouse gas pollution, droughts, water scarcity, and soil degradation, promoting a balance between immediate agricultural outputs and long-term environmental health.

  • Food loss prevention (5%): Global food waste is a significant problem, with 17% of annual food production, or 931 million metric tons, going unconsumed. Solutions focus on extending product shelf life, employing sustainable packaging, and improving farm management. Addressing food waste is critical for enhancing food security, reducing resource depletion, and minimizing economic and environmental impacts, including CO2 emissions and water wastage.





Newtree Impact has backed disruptive innovation driven by entrepreneurs that share their values. From precision agriculture, plant-based meat, sustainable petfood to impact funds, they invest towards a large spectrum within the agri-food tech sector.
