Clean Growth Fund, the UK clean tech venture capital fund, has led a £3.6m investment in Kamma, the property data and analytics business.

The investment will fund the expansion of Kamma’s property data engine that acquires, integrates, and calibrates thousands of property data points in order to deliver optimal routes to achieve Net Zero in the UK property sector.


The UK property sector is the second largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, with buildings and construction responsible for around 25% of all emissions.

But it is also one of the slowest sectors in the UK economy to decarbonise due to widely out-of-date and inaccurate property data.

Clean Growth FundKamma’s engine uses multiple sources to provide the most accurate and up-to-date climate data available, quantifying the full emissions footprint of residential property and allowing for individual retrofit requirements to be determined.

Orla Shields (main picture), Kamma Chief Executive and Co-founder, says: “At this crucial juncture in the Built Environment’s fight against climate change, it is particularly valuable to have the support of Clean Growth Fund, one of the leading climate-tech investors in the country.

“Their decision to invest is testament to the strength of both our technology and the team that built it.”


And she adds: “We are resourced and well-positioned to help our clients in the property sector to deliver against challenging Net Zero goals and to be the data behind Net Zero.”

Susannah McClintock, Investment Partner at Clean Growth Fund, adds: “With the property sector representing such a large proportion of UK and global emissions, we are excited and impressed by the contribution Kamma can make to enabling net zero in the built environment.

“Kamma’s technology is already contributing to the sector but there is undoubtedly scope and opportunity for Kamma to do so much more.”

Alongside Clean Growth Fund, the other investors in the funding round are Triple Point and Pi Labs (both follow-on investors) plus Conduit EIS Impact Fund and Kiilto Ventures.
