The Red emprendeverde (ReV) is a multidisciplinary initiative of the Biodiversity Foundation of the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, Food and Environment that works to preserve the natural heritage and biodiversity, directing its conservation to the creation of employmentwealth and well-being in the whole society.

The Red emprendeverde project is developed within the framework of the Empleaverde Program of the Biodiversity Foundation, co-financed by the European Social Fund. It also has an important network of collaborators with a clear vocation to support entrepreneurs such as the National Company of Innovation (ENISA), the Spanish Business Angels Association (AEBAN), Triodos Bank and Triodos Foundation.

Its purpose is to encourage the creation and consolidation of companies or new business lines in activities related to the environment and their protection, as well as channeling investment towards sustainable economic activities (one of the “new” economies).

It is a specialized network of entrepreneurs, investors (and financiers) and people interested in sustainable entrepreneurship, which seeks to integrate initiatives to support existing ventures, create synergies and put them at the service of green entrepreneurs.

According to the ReV, a green entrepreneur is a professional, micropyme or SME, who is currently developing business initiatives or who wants to start one up, including new business lines.

So, if you are a green entrepreneur, an investor or financier interested in obtaining from your investment not only an economic profitability but a positive environmental and social impact, or a person interested in green entrepreneurship, in other words, a professional from different disciplines as is the case of researchers, university professors or business schools, representatives of administrations, civil society, etc., the ReV is for you.

By the way, the ReV understands by green company the one that contributes to:

  • Decarbonize the economy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Reduce the consumption of energy, raw materials and water through eco-efficiency strategies.
  • Avoid or minimize the generation of pollution and promote the reduction, reuse or recycling of waste.
  • Market products designed to minimize their ecological impact throughout their life cycle (ecodesign).
  • Value the natural resources of a territory by promoting its sustainable use.
