Ener2crowd Exceeds 3 Million and Becomes a Benefit Company

In August, Ener2crowd was transformed into a benefit company, strengthening its purposes in terms of support for businesses, the environment, people, and the third sector, increasing responsibility for sustainable practices (green energy, zero plastic, mobility) and implementing transparency policies that will see third parties certify the results.

Ener2crowd, the first Italian Lending Crowdfunding platform dedicated to companies that develop interventions in environmental sustainability, energy efficiency, and renewable energy, in just under two years since its launch, has exceeded the value of three million euros in funding.

In particular, in the first 8 months of 2021, as many projects have been funded as in the entire 2020. In addition, the company announced that there will be many reimbursements in the coming months, as well as the prospect of approaching five million raised by the end of the year.

However, in its newsletter, the platform felt the need to mention the disaster caused by fires around the world. Citing its own analysis carried out in mid-August, Ener2crowd confirmed that “2.2 billion trees had already gone up in smoke, equivalent to a worldwide CO2 increase of +4.2%.” It follows that investing more in a sustainable future is the only way to “make the ecosystem on which our very survival depends to survive.”

To give even more solidity to this intent, in August, the startup was transformed into a benefit company, strengthening its purposes in terms of support for businesses, the environment, people, and the third sector, increasing responsibility for sustainable practices (green energy, zero plastic, mobility) and implementing transparency policies that will see third parties certify the results. In addition, an “Ethical Advisory Board” has been created with which the board will consult to guide its choices for the purpose of a more just and inclusive society.

Giorgio Mottironi co-founder of Ener2Crowd and responsible for the strategy, commented: “I hope that all this can give even more comfort and strength to the actions that you want to take with us or in your private life to build together a sustainable future. It will not be the security of each of us, as isolated individuals, to ensure common prosperity, but only a full and sincere collaboration towards goals that protect our rights, realize our dreams and also those of others who may not know they have them or do not feel ready to claim them or live them”.

Ener2crowd was founded back in 2018

The company was founded in 2018 by Niccolò Sovico, an Energy and Nuclear engineer with experience in the USA; Sergio Pedolazzi a civil engineer with managerial experience in the energy-saving sector; Paolo Baldinelli, a degree in economics, with significant experience in the energy and consulting sector; Giorgio Mottironi, an expert in marketing and behavioral dynamics connected to economic systems on the B2C and B2B market.

Launched at the end of 2019, during 2020 it has financed 15 campaigns raising 1.6 million intended for projects that aim to reduce CO2, managing to aggregate a community of about 2,600 people.

A peculiarity of Ener2crowd is that, for each project, a normalized parameter called “EnerScore” is provided and assigned to each single investment proposal. This parameter defines a global rating that summarizes in an objective, complete and understandable way all the data that characterize the project.
