Santander X Environmental Challenge: a global call for entrepreneurs with innovative ideas aimed to build a more sustainable future
Grupo Santander wants to be at the forefront in solving the demands of our society and helping people and businesses to prosper. That is why we launch, in collaboration with Oxentia Foundation, the Santander X Environmental Challenge, to support entrepreneurs committed to the environment and with innovative ideas to build a more sustainable future.
Be sustainable, by fostering green financing and investments
Economic recovery requires investing in a more resilient, greener, smarter and inclusive, and more dynamic economy.
How can you bring sustainable investment and financing solutions to people and investors who want to support economic activities with a positive environmental impact?
How can your solution help investors or financial institutions to support companies to take the lead on a transition to a low carbon economy?
Be mindful, about the environmental impact
The transition to a low-carbon and sustainable growth approach, could lead to an economic boost of $26 trillion dollars through 2030. Sustainable development could help create more than 65 million new jobs, according to the Global Commission of Economy and Climate.
How can your solution help individuals and companies, including their supply chain, to measure their environmental impact?
How can you help with solutions that improve the re-invention of businesses and industries, to make them reduce their environmental impact and favour biodiversity?
The Santander X Environmental Challenge opens up a world of possibilities for entrepreneurs. On the one hand, it encourages investors and, ultimately, society itself, to choose these startups and, on the other, this global challenge gives exposure, resources and tools to business ideas on which our immediate future depends.

In this new context, a resilient, inclusive and low-carbon economy is essential for economic recovery.
Transform your environment!
Banco Santander and its commitment to sustainability
At Banco Santander, our purpose is to contribute to the progress of people and businesses, supporting inclusive and sustainable economic growth and promoting the fight against climate change. We are leading the ecological transition towards new sustainable models, promoting numerous initiatives that show that our strategy is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals and the United Nations' Collective Commitment to Climate Action.
Proof of our strong commitment to the environment is that we have achieved carbon neutrality, offsetting all the Co2 emissions generated by our business. In addition, to reduce our own environmental footprint, this year we will also eliminate single-use plastic in our offices and buildings and, by 2025, 100% of the energy we consume will come from renewable sources.
As a global leader in renewable energy project financing, to help our clients transition to a low-carbon economy, we have set another objective to facilitate the mobilisation of EUR 120 billion in green finance from 2019 to 2025 and EUR 220 billion by 2030.
