Data, community, and knowledge share have always been key elements of the Circular Carbon Network. We believe they play a meaningful role in increasing capital flow and commercialization. As you may know, we launched our Innovators Index last fall and earlier this year we followed with our Capital Index. We are now rounding out the key stakeholders in the broader circular carbon sector with our Corporate Index and Catalyst Index.
While these indexes are a work in progress, we’ve identified a critical mass of large companies with publicized activity within the circular carbon value chain. There are also a broad range of market catalysts – organizations that exist to serve and accelerate the stakeholders in our Innovator, Capital, and Corporate indexes.
Please see below for a snapshot of what the data show. We look forward to tapping our Network to improve and expand the companies and organizations covered in these indexes.
CCN Corporate Index
The purpose of the Corporate Index is to identify big companies that are actively intersecting with the Circular Carbon sector. In addition to creating awareness of corporate activity, we believe this will help entrepreneurs find potential corporate partners who may help with R&D, demonstration, supply-chain, and/or a variety of other roles big companies may play in the value chain. Additionally, by showing the different ways these multi-nationals are participating in the sector, investors can begin to hypothesize about commercial and exit pathways.
We identified more than 50 companies across industries including Microsoft, Amazon, Air Liquide, Exxon, Delta, Coca Cola, Cemex, and many more.
CCN Catalyst Index
The catalyst index is meant to be a tool that can help stakeholders gain a clearer understanding of the wide range of organizations working to support and accelerate the emerging circular carbon sector. The purpose of this index is many fold but ultimately is aimed at building a more self-aware community of stakeholders so that they can leverage the resources at their disposal.
