Companies Combine Forces for Climate Action

Several of Europe’s top tech companies have teamed up with Leaders for Climate Action (LFCA), a Berlin-based climate change non-profit bringing together various entrepreneurs from Germany’s startup ecosystem.

The companies brought together under this initiative are the likes of idealo, Delivery Hero, BlaBla Car, Wefox, Doctolib, Ecosia, GetYourGuide, Flixbus, Glovo, Cabify, Personio and major VC funds such as e.ventures, Heartcore Capital, Northzone, Picus Capital, Project A, Holtzbrinck Ventures, Acton Capital, and Earlybird.

“Our goal is to turn the whole digital industry climate neutral, influence policy makers to set a global carbon price and act as an example for other industries,” Ferry Heilemann LFCA Co-Founder, serial entrepreneur and investor, said in a statement.

These companies will aim to fight the climate crisis by pledging to turn business models to become carbon-neutral, building an active community that sets more sustainable industry standards, and influence policymakers.

LFCA have called for the immediate establishment of an effective greenhouse gas pricing applied on a regional, country and global level (ideally). The expansion towards 100 percent renewable energy and the global implementation of natural greenhouse gas sinks, must be politically enforced as quickly and effectively as possible.
