Berlin-based start-up Plan A, founded by Bulgarian Lubomila Jordanova, has been awarded the prestigious “The Europas Award 2021”. The greentech company’s carbon management software solution was distinguished in the category “Hottest Sustainability/Climate Tech” after a public vote and a subsequent jury selection, Plan A said in a press release.
TechCrunch editor-at-large Mike Butcher originally formed the award in 2009 to find and honour the biggest tech innovations in the European start-up scene. In the past, corporate giants such as Spotify, Transferwise, Soundcloud and Deliveroo have already received this recognition.
This year’s award in the category “Hottest Sustainability/Climate Tech” went to Plan A. After a public vote and a subsequent jury selection, Mike Butcher chose Plan A’s carbon management software solution as the best sustainability and climate innovation in Europe.
“We are incredibly proud of this award and of our team that made this success possible, “said Lubomila Jordanova, CEO of Plan A. “Many thanks to the thousands of people who voted for us and the jury that selected us afterwards. We are honoured and will continue our journey to decarbonise the corporate sector across Europe and expand our client family.”
About The Europas Awards
The Europas Awards were launched in 2009 by TechCrunch editor Mike Butcher to recognise and celebrate the innovations of Europe’s burgeoning tech start-up scene. For more than ten years now, Europe’s most ambitious and successful start-ups have been identified and crowned annually, including Spotify, Transferwise, Soundcloud and Babylon Health. Today, the award is considered one of the most important honours for Europe’s hottest tech start-ups.
Plan A, founded in 2017, helps companies affected by carbon emission regulations, predominantly banking, financial and international corporations. Its end-to-end B2B platform lets businesses measure, monitor, reduce and report their environmental footprint while improving their ESG performance. What the software basically does is using data to predict where and why climate change will hit the hardest and then based on these insights crowdfunded capital is channeled to environmental organizations and innovators that solve these issues.
