Re: Breakthrough Energy Ventures Fund
Dear Mr. Gates,
Your details were passed on to me regarding your $1 billion fund that aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to almost zero by financing emerging clean energy technology.
This, being relevant to our long-standing, G7 stakeholder project*, supporting next year’s (the 43rd) G7 2017 Summit.
Your advocacy would be positioned alongside our regular contributors: the G7 Heads of State, Leading UN Agencies, Senior Policymakers and a select number of our industry partners and innovators. For details of the publication’s audience, distribution and options to participate please could you or one of your colleagues respond by email so that we can provide you with the supporting documentation?
With kind regards,
