Our foundation strives to improve Europe’s Carbon footprint by recognizing and awarding those organizations and companies that manage to substantially reduce their own output into the environment.

In the past years, global warming and other problems related to the rapid progress in human activity have been attracting a great deal of attention.  The deterioration of the environment, which is fundamental to the survival of the human race, is becoming a main concern, not only in Europe, but worldwide as a global problem. The decrease of natural environments and the extinction of wildlife species are just the tip of the iceberg.


We believe in the power of change: the best gift we can give to future generations is to leave a decarbonized and green Europe.

In order to build a more sustainable continent, the European CO² Foundation is inspired by the goals of the European Green Deal. In response to these future changes, the European CO² Foundation aims to accelerate the achievement of a neutral carbon footprint in Europe. The firms and institutions that want to contribute to a cleaner and less polluted continent can contact us with the purpose to get our official awards. Both official awards prove the reduction and commitment of the firms and institutions in mitigating the impact of greenhouse gases. Join our initiative and find out what we can do for you!

The European CO² Foundation is a non-profit foundation under Belgian law, domiciled in Bruxelles.

The European CO² Foundation has summed up for you what we consider the most important information about the Green Deal. The Foundation is in line and supports each and every point described in this section, as it is our guideline to follow and as Ursula von der Leyen said in September 2019: The world needs more Europe.

Climate change and environmental degradation are an existential threat to Europe and the world. To overcome these challenges, Europe needs a new growth strategy that will transform the Union into a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy, where:

  • There are no net emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050
  • Economic growth is decoupled from resource use
  • No person and no place is left behind

The European Green Deal is the plan to make EU’s economy sustainable.

We achieve its goals by turning climate and environmental challenges into opportunities and making the transition just and inclusive for all.

The European Green Deal provides an action plan to:

  • Boost the efficient use of resources by moving to a clean, circular economy
  • Restore biodiversity and cut pollution

The plan outlines investments needed and financing tools available. It explains how to ensure a just and inclusive transition
