Recognitions for innovation to achieve the SDGs

CO2 Revolution, the multi-award-winning company that accelerates the sustainable economy by contributing to the SDGs.

After the conclusion of COP27, companies and public organizations are taking stock to analyze the evolution of their sustainability initiatives. Particularly, efforts are focused on the final stretch of this year, which commemorates the seventh anniversary of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which, according to the UN Global Compact in Spain, aim for innovation to achieve the 2030 Agenda oriented towards new sustainable business models.

The report “SDGs, Year 7” prepared by the organization UN Global Compact Spanish Network with the purpose of evaluating the commitment of Spanish companies to adopt ESG strategies indicates that “only 16% of companies develop all their innovations favoring approaches to promote sustainability”. Within this group, CO2 Revolution stands out for its absolute dedication to achieving SDGs 13 and 15, “Climate Action” and “Life on Land,” respectively.

Thanks to its commitment to innovation, CO2 Revolution has been recognized on several occasions as one of the best sustainability initiatives. Last October, it received an award for its revolutionary reforestation methods at the SustainabilityDay22 gala, organized by CompromisoRSE and Equipos&Talento. Additionally, in 2020, the company was awarded at the Expansion Startup Awards in the environment and energy category. Likewise, in 2019, it won the title of Revelation Company at the III edition of the Business Awards organized by the Vocento publishing group.

Since its foundation in 2018, the startup has been successful and has worked with major companies such as Santander, Iberdrola, Deloitte, Ibercaja Springfield, or ALSA. Alongside them, it has collaborated on various initiatives, being part of their sustainability routes and helping them achieve their ESG goals. In this regard, during the XX Environment and Sustainable Development Conference, organized by Madridiario on November 28th, ALSA’s Director of Institutional Relations, Ignacio Pérez Carasa, mentioned the “Bosque ALSA,” a project developed in collaboration with CO2 Revolution, as part of the company’s roadmap to achieve emission neutrality.

In addition to working with private entities, CO2 Revolution has received support from the public administration on several occasions. In 2021, it was a beneficiary of a grant for innovative technology-based companies from the NEOTEC program managed by CDTI, an organization under the Ministry of Science and Innovation. It was also selected by ICEX to participate in the DESAFIA San Francisco internationalization project and present its business model in the Silicon Valley tech ecosystem.

Furthermore, in 2019, the company was chosen as one of the top 100 startups globally, according to South Summit, the leading platform in innovation and sustainability. On the other hand, the analysis by the Institute of Governance and Applied Economics Coordinates placed CO2 Revolution first in the category of innovation and environmental commitment. The institution stated that CO2 Revolution is “radically changing the reforestation model and generating a positive impact on a large scale, both environmentally and socially” thanks to its technology.
