We are Vargas
Accelerating the transition to a sustainable future is everyone’s responsibility, and at the same time, an enormous opportunity. That is why we push boundaries in areas where it matters the most. With a firm belief in the power of innovation and technology, we build impact companies that create solutions to today’s challenges – and for those of tomorrow. In this way, we will reach our vision to decarbonise one per cent of global emissions.

PUTTING INNOVATION, TECHNOLOGY AND CAPITAL TO WORK
Vargas is a not traditional investor. We build impact companies by putting innovation, technology and capital to work. Once we have identified and validated a business case, we finance, launch and scale a company that will rewrite the rules of its industry. Polarium, Northvolt, H2 Green Steel and Aira are companies we have built from the ground up according to our greenfield model.
Vargas’ portfolio companies have invested approximately $20 billion in equity and debt to accelerate decarbonisation. Now, it is time to scale up ourselves to scale up more game changers. We will continue to push boundaries in the areas that matter the most, targeting highly emitting and hard-to-abate industries. And where the technological prerequisites and business cases exist, we will seize the opportunity and act. Our aim is to realise additional ventures over time.
We are entrepreneurs, and we are here to stay. Unlike traditional venture capital or private equity firms, we have a long-term perspective, building from scratch and staying involved. And as impact company builders, we have an evergreen perspective as active owners.
Our greenfield approach to building large-scale industrial ventures let us leverage greater margins and incorporate sustainable design throughout our value chains. And, consequently, disrupt and decarbonise one industry after the other.
