The Hive Ventures team is in place to invest in circular economy businesses and grow our sustainable business group.
At Hive we are continuing to expand our portfolio of renewable energy activities. However, we are also looking to understand, explore and invest in innovative and emerging technologies. We invest in the circular economy because we want to support a clean future.
In an exciting first two years, we successfully created joint ventures with DBG Bioenergy, CuanTec, Nafici Environmental Research, and BambooLogic. All four companies are carbon-negative businesses which process industrial waste streams using novel technologies. They transform waste into valuable products which replace the existing fossil-fuel-based alternatives.
The team also paired up with Packamama, a unique packaging company based in the UK.
We are always seeking new technologies and opportunities to reduce carbon emissions and develop the circular economy.
Hive’s main objective is to play leading a role in reaching a net-zero future, and the circular economy is a vital component in creating a greener future. Instead of continuing to exploit our resources to create products on a linear scale, we believe that recycling, reusing, and reducing waste is the best way to move forward mindfully and sustainably – which is where Hive Ventures come in.
Hive Ventures supports us in making better-informed business decisions. The team identify key areas in which to expand our operations across the clean energy and circular economy markets.
Our team of circular economy experts undertake research to find new and exciting start ups that share our vision for a cleaner future. The research team compare many new technologies and business opportunities to identify cost-effective solutions in key areas that will support climate change mitigation.
Our Research Managers and Director of Circular Economies engage directly with our group companies to support business growth with the aim to kick off production.
