GreeMko, Green Management Technology, has received the award in the Startup category for its work against Climate Change in Spain at the Climate Leaders Awards. These awards are promoted by The Climate Reality Project Europe, the initiative created to fight against Climate Change by Al Gore, former Vice President of the United States and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.
GreeMko is a Spanish start up that offers services that allow companies and institutions to automatically calculate their environmental performance, manage it in an efficient and simple way, and minimise it, including the carbon footprint.
Its clients include companies such as Google, Siemens, González Byass, Ecoalf and Forética. In 2020 it was selected for the European Union programme "EIT Climate-KIC Accelerator in Spain, the largest public-private accelerator in Europe for the fight against climate change. GreeMko has also been the winner of the first edition of the DayOne Open Innovation Program, launched by CaixaBank.
"The first step to improve is to measure," explains Jorge Portillo, CEO of GreeMko. "We want to make it easier for our clients to comply with increasingly demanding legal requirements or tender and contract requirements, register their carbon footprint with the ministry, develop mitigation plans and, above all, help them to become more efficient and sustainable, reducing their environmental impact," adds Portillo.
The awards gala was televised and broadcast from the awards platform (www.climateawards.eu) on 24 March at 19.00 and was presented by journalists Manuel Campo Vidal and Laura Ferrer.
