EnviroStrat CEO, Dr Nigel Bradly was interviewed for this newsroom article examining why New Zealand isn’t leading the world when it comes to funding innovation around agricultural emissions reduction technologies.
“The New Zealand investment community is highly conservative by comparison with investors overseas,” Bradly says. “There’s no shortage of investment capital looking for climate innovation, but New Zealand investors don’t walk the talk in the same way they do elsewhere. This is especially the case for non tech climate investment – nature-based solutions for example are woefully underinvested. There is not the same willingness to take risks. Here we are still having the same ‘back-to-basic’ conversations with investors.”
