On May 27, 2023, Citigroup Inc. announced that it had expanded its investments in renewable energy company Gevo, Inc. by purchasing an additional 125,546 shares during the fourth quarter.

Citigroup’s move is a sign of growing interest among institutional investors towards cleaner forms of energy production such as biofuels, which Gevo specializes in. The company uses proprietary technology to convert renewable feedstocks like corn into low-carbon fuels, chemicals and plastics without using fossil fuels.
Gevo has faced significant challenges in the past, with year-over-year losses mounting and investors losing faith in its product line. However, experts believe that the shift towards alternative energy sources presents a promising opportunity for the company to establish itself as a key player in America’s transition towards carbon-neutral economy.
Despite some challenges, Gevo’s latest financial records reveal a promising growth trajectory. The firm’s stock has been on an upward ascent since hitting a low of $1.01 per share earlier this year; on May 27th itself, shares opened at $1.24 and have continued to rise steadily throughout the day.
Moreover, with support from big institutional investors like Citigroup Inc., more funds are likely to follow suit and begin investing in organizations focused on environmental innovation; this could soon translate into a surge of capital flowing into companies like Gevo who are striving for sustainability via modern technology.
