GreeMko, a Spanish start-up that entered the EIT Climate-KIC Accelerator in 2020, won the Climate Reality Project’s ‘Climate Leaders Awards’ in Spain.
Launched in 2019, and one of the 13 projects selected in 2020 for the seventh edition of the EIT Climate-KIC Start-up Accelerator in Spain, GreeMko designed a tool to help businesses measure and analyse their emissions as well as their environmental performance. In addition to collecting CO2 emissions data, they also look at the electricity, fuel and water consumption, as well as waste generation of a product, event or project. The start-up aims to encourage companies to become more sustainable and better prepare for a market that increasingly demands more environmental transparency.
