InBC will invest in small and medium-sized B.C. companies to help them scale up and reach their highest potential, while generating returns to support a growing economy that benefits all British Columbians.
InBC will be flexible in how it invests. The fund will support low carbon innovation and the low carbon economy across sectors. InBC will make an impact by investing on a triple bottom line basis. The three elements of InBC’s triple bottom line include:
- Financial Return: InBC’s investments will seek to provide financial returns.
- Environmental Impact: InBC will contribute to a better future by investing in the low-carbon economy to create new clean-energy jobs and opportunities.
- Economic and Social Impact: InBC’s investments will contribute to positive economic and social outcomes for people throughout British Columbia; this includes jobs creation, advancing reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, and promoting diversity and inclusion.
The investment program is currently in development and more information regarding the investment process will be available in fall 2021.
