SEATTLE, Oct. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- PitchBook, the premier data provider for the private and public equity markets, today released a new report on the climate tech sector to better help clients and investors navigate a space that has exploded with innovation and investment in recent years. The quarterly report will explore trends and investment in emerging climate technology with a focus on technologies used to decarbonize the economy. Spurred on by the Paris Agreement, capital deployed in climate tech between 2013-2019 grew at five times the overall venture capital growth rate even though climate tech only made up six percent of the total venture capital invested in 2020. Interest in climate tech among venture investors remains high, with a record $30.8 billion invested across 783 deals year-to-date in 2021. The climate tech sector adds to the research firm's already robust list of emerging technology and private market coverage areas from its 24 PitchBook Institutional Research Group analysts. In addition to the climate tech sector, PitchBook will also release a cleantech sector report in early 2022, followed by additional reports on ESG, biotech and private equity activity in the healthcare space.
