pathway2netzero was formed in November 2020 by Mark Arthur to primarily bring together technical and financial expertise to help invest and support businesses and people who have innovative ideas, services, and products but have no means to gain access to finance due to the inability to show a trading track record and/or profitability.


pathway2netzero has been formed to address these issues and help develop and grow the next generation of entrepreneurs and inventors in what shall be the next industrial revolution to create a NetZero greenhouse gas emissions world and economy.

Our Expertise

Our Management Team have a proven track record in the Renewable Energy Infrastructure and Financial Services sectors and over the last ten years have focussed on carbon neutrality and NetZero technologies. We have the skills required to undertake due diligence from a technical and financial perspective on businesses, products and/or infrastructure projects and shall be adding / supplementing these skills with more management team members over the coming months.

Our Commitment to Results

Unlike most other Investment Companies at pathway2netzero we shall not just invest monies in businesses’ products or infrastructure projects we shall invest our time, expertise, experience and knowledge in all investments. Indeed, our involvement is one of the key requirements as part of the financial investment as we believe it shall firstly add value to the businesses / individuals requesting the support and secondly, and importantly, protect our investors’ interests to ensure they get the return agreed at the investment launch.

Our Philosophy

pathway2netzero has been established to be a profitable and successful business in its own right within the Carbon Neutrality sector, however one of the key reasons we, as a Management Team, are going on this journey is to help others fulfil their potential and at the same time help the planet to achieve a cleaner greener future.  We are all at a senior stage in our careers.  We want to enjoy this journey and have the satisfaction of helping others achieve their dreams and hopefully leave a legacy our families can be proud of.

Our Experience

With over 100 years combined experience in the Consultancy and Financial Services sectors we are well placed to support any business or individual wishing help in exploring investment in the seven sectors below.

  • Decarbonisation of power

  • Decarbonisation of transportation

  • Decarbonisation of heat
