Who we are

An asset management institution driven on impact investments guided by environmental, social, and governance frameworks

Gunung Capital is a private investment management company focused on impact investments guided by environmental, social, and governance (ESG) frameworks. The management team’s vision is to help the world better protect the environment by investing and supporting carbon markets, encouraging adoption of decarbonization technology and related innovation, establishing carbon credits as a recognized emerging asset class, and ultimately funneling more capital into sustainable enterprises.

Partnering closely with global investors, policy makers, non-governmental organizations and enterprises, Gunung Capital is committed to dealing with climate change and making the future of transformation capital flow more seamlessly and efficiently.

Our Roots

In 1970, a small steel mill was established during a time when no one dared invest in steel. Building from the ground up, that steel mill is now one of the largest, privately-owned, vertically-integrated steel companies in Southeast Asia – leading the industry and setting a precedence for the level of excellence, experience, and expertise required of a world-class company. Over the years, our track record of transparency, accountability, and professionalism has created a network of strategic connections with investors and partners in China, Thailand, and Japan, throughout Asia and around the world.

As we learned and mastered how to own, operate and invest in our own company, it became clear that the next step would be to help other promising businesses do the same.
