About North Sky Capital

North Sky was founded in 2000 and has raised more than $1.2 billion of investor commitments. Since 2005, we have been playing an innovative and leadership role in the impact/ESG investment marketplace. We work arm-in-arm with our clients to identify and invest in companies and infrastructure projects that make the world a better place.We seek to create a positive impact by stimulating social and environmental change while generating strong financial returns.

In 2005, North Sky launched the first impact fund of funds in North America and we have continued to innovate in this market, launching the first impact secondaries fund in 2013. Today, our Clean Growth Funds are the leading liquidity providers to impact investors worldwide. Please click here to learn more about our Clean Growth secondaries funds.

During the Global Financial Crisis, we identified an opportunity to invest in clean energy infrastructure projects in North America, while also creating high-paying construction jobs for electricians, carpenters, operating engineers, machinists, steelworkers, plumbers & pipefitters and other hard-working Americans and Canadians. We raised our first Alliance infrastructure fund in 2013 and have since created ~2GW of new clean power generation and storage capacity in North America.

Together with our clients, we have created one of the most well-diversified and highly-impactful investment platforms focused on private markets in North America. We continue to collaborate with our clients to do even greater things tomorrow.
