Accelerating De-carbonization with Technology


GFJ ESG Acquisition I SE is a newly-formed Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC) established for the purpose of acquiring a non-listed ESG-related target company in the form of a merger, capital stock exchange, share purchase, asset acquisition, reorganization or similar transaction.

GFJ ESG Acquisition I SE will seek a business combination with an established-stage European tech company which focuses on ESG-related technologies supporting the path to de-carbonization.

The path to net zero will trigger more than $130 trillion worth of investments by 2050 with technology acting as a key enabler to deliver such targets.

We have chosen Europe because the market remains underpenetrated relative to the sizeable opportunity set of high-growth companies with sustainable and digital business models.

Almost 60% of publicly listed Clean Energy companies are based in Europe.

We see a large opportunity set of European Clean Tech companies that want to be listed in Europe.

GFJ ESG Acquisition I SE is sponsored by Gisbert Ruehl, founder and CEO of GFJ, Florian Fritsch, founder and Vice-Chairman of the Supervisory Board, and Josef Brunner, founder and Chairman of the Supervisory Board.

As our mission is to accelerate ESG-related technologies to support the path to de-carbonization, we put together a world-class team both in the Management Board and Supervisory Board.

This team has an outstanding track record and footprint in achieving exceptional results in companies such as Kloeckner SE, Microsoft, Leica Camera AG, Outfittery, Porsche SE, and many others.

We combine established and known skills for entrepreneurship, investments, growth, and scale management.

We believe in resilient business models, high quality management teams, great tech development pipelines, secured IP rights, and international scope based on technologies that make ESG happen.

For established business companies, a SPAC is a professional and promising alternative route to market in contrast to a conventional IPO as it teams up senior experienced partners with management backgrounds.

The goal is to create further value and drive post-merger performance by identifying the substance and growing the potentials.

This is an opportunity for investors to invest in a growth- and scale-stage European ESG tech company in collaboration with the GFJ team that offers a differentiated and complementary skillset as demonstrated by a number of investment success stories over the last decades.
