Frank­furt am Main, 17. June 17, 2024 – NEON EQUI­TY AG (“NEON EQUI­TY”, ISIN DE000A3DW408) today signed a coope­ra­ti­on agree­ment with Green Encoded GmbH in Frank­furt in the pre­sence of Dr. Oth­mar Karas, First Vice Pre­si­dent of the Euro­pean Par­lia­ment. The aim of the part­ner­ship is to deve­lop joint Green Deal-com­pli­ant finan­cial pro­ducts on a token basis. The aim is to give natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal inves­tors access to high-yield impact invest­ments that meet the cri­te­ria of the EU taxo­no­my and ESG tar­gets. In addi­ti­on, NEON EQUI­TY and Green Encoded pro­ducts can be cer­ti­fied by DEKRA as the offi­ci­al glo­bal part­ner of Green Encoded.

NEON EQUI­TY and Green Encoded plan to initia­te the first joint Green Deal-com­pli­ant invest­ment pro­ducts in the coming quar­ters.

Dr. Oth­mar Karas, First Vice-Pre­si­dent of the Euro­pean Par­lia­ment and mem­ber of the Eco­no­mic and Mone­ta­ry Affairs Com­mit­tee: Euro­pe will be the first cli­ma­te-neu­tral con­ti­nent by 2050 - that is non-nego­tia­ble. To achie­ve this goal, we need the sup­port of the eco­no­my and the finan­cial mar­ket. Wit­hout addi­tio­nal pri­va­te capi­tal, this trans­for­ma­ti­on will not suc­ceed. Trans­pa­ren­cy is the most important step for cre­di­bi­li­ty. The eco­no­my and the envi­ron­ment must no lon­ger be oppo­si­tes, but must com­ple­ment each other.”

The EU’s Green Deal envi­sa­ges Euro­pe beco­ming the first cli­ma­te-neu­tral con­ti­nent by 2050. In addi­ti­on, net green­house gas emis­si­ons are to be redu­ced by at least 55% by 2030 com­pared to 1990 levels. Within this frame­work, the EU is sup­port­ing Euro­pean com­pa­nies with a focus on ESG-com­pli­ant tech­no­lo­gies and pro­ducts.

Dr. Oth­mar Karas con­tin­ued: I am the­r­e­fo­re deligh­ted that NEON EQUI­TY is taking an inno­va­ti­ve approach with the Aus­tri­an com­pa­ny Green Encoded and thus hel­ping the idea of the Green Deal to deve­lop its poten­ti­al for inves­tors. I am gra­teful for the insights into the new ven­tures and wish the pro­ject all the best.”

Ole Nix­dorff, CEO of NEON EQUI­TY: We are very plea­sed to be working with Green Encoded, as tog­e­ther we can crea­te num­e­rous syn­er­gies for the bene­fit of the envi­ron­ment and socie­ty. Green Encoded brings its exper­ti­se in the toke­niza­ti­on of ESG-cer­ti­fied pro­ducts, while we con­tri­bu­te our know-how in capi­tal mar­ket tran­sac­tions and our strong inves­tor net­work. The envi­ron­ment and our port­fo­lio com­pa­nies will also be able to bene­fit from the Green Deal com­pli­ant pro­ducts. We are par­ti­cu­lar­ly proud that we have recei­ved the full sup­port of poli­ti­ci­ans for this important part­ner­ship. In this con­text, we would like to thank Dr. Karas, First Vice-Pre­si­dent of the EU Par­lia­ment.”

Micha­el Kien, owner and Mana­ging Direc­tor of Green Encoded: Our world is chan­ging and we see this as a gre­at oppor­tu­ni­ty. Com­pa­nies now need a legal­ly com­pli­ant and trans­pa­rent trans­for­ma­ti­on from eco­lo­gi­cal neces­si­ties to eco­no­mic pro­fi­ta­bi­li­ty. The coope­ra­ti­on with NEON EQUI­TY, one of the lea­ding play­ers in the field of impact invest­ment, shows the gre­at poten­ti­al of the Green Encoded plat­form. We bene­fit from NEON EQUI­TY­’s capi­tal mar­ket exper­ti­se and thus have the per­fect part­ner at our side. Tog­e­ther, we can suc­cessful­ly sup­port com­pa­nies in making eco­no­mic use of sus­taina­bi­li­ty while pro­tec­ting natu­re, the cli­ma­te and bio­di­ver­si­ty.”


NEON EQUI­TY AG invests in ESG com­pli­ant com­pa­nies with high growth oppor­tu­ni­ties in future indus­tries such as AI, mobi­li­ty, nut­ri­ti­on, health and ener­gy and accom­pa­nies them in suc­cessful IPOs. In doing so, NEON EQUI­TY is one of the lea­ding pro­vi­ders in advi­sing IPOs and capi­tal mar­ket tran­sac­tions and con­nects fast-gro­­wing ESG com­pa­nies with inter­na­tio­nal insti­tu­tio­nal inves­tors. NEON EQUI­TY thus pur­sues a sus­tainable and stock mar­ket rele­vant stra­tegy and advi­ses its port­fo­lio part­ners inde­pendent­ly of banks on all capi­tal mar­ket instru­ments.
