Prototype Carbon Fund Increase In Capital: "The increase of $35 m was announced at the PCF annual meeting in Zakopane, Poland. This brings the total fund capital to $180 m, almost twice the amount originally projected, extending the PCF's carbon emissions reduction reach in the developing world. 'There was so much enthusiasm, that more capital was offered than could be absorbed, forcing the Fund to resort to an allocation system among the contributors. These companies see the PCF as a powerful tool for carbon emissions reductions as the world copes with the threat of imminent and destructive climate change,' said Ken Newcombe, the Prototype Carbon Fund Manager.
