Mission & objectives

ECOVE’s mission is to catalyze a sustainable economy in Spain and Europe, by strengthening business ecosystems and bringing the voice of SMEs and ecopreneurs to decision makers. On the road to that mission, the following objectives guide our step:
  • Consult and defend the needs and interests of all the companies, members of the Association, working for a green and equitable economy.
  • To serve as an instrument to improve laws and public policies in the transition towards a green and equitable economy.
  • Contribute to the development, promotion, and interconnection of the regional green economy ecosystems exising in Spain.

  • Origins and initial social mass

    ECOVE has its origins in Greenbiz, which acted as the partner in Spain of Ecopreneur.eu since January 2015. In February 2016, Greenbiz joined forces with Ciclogreen and many other sustainable SMEs from its network to lay the foundations stone of ECOVE, with a clear common goal: bring the voice of SMEs and ecoentrepeneurs to policy makers at national and European level.

    As of today, March 15, 2016, ECOVE has an initial social mass of 30 companies and professionals working in the green economy. Growth perspectives are high, thanks to the “network of networks” structure explained below.

    To meet its goals, ECOVE undertakes the following activities:
  • Organization of days of debate, outreach and networking on the green economy.
  • Regular consultation of members’ needs, in relation with the scaling up of their projects’ social and environmental impact.
