OMV Petrom, the largest integrated energy company in South-Eastern Europe, is supporting Black Sea ClimAccelerator, a program dedicated to financing start-ups that innovate for a more sustainable future. The program will support some of the most promising startups in Romania and Bulgaria, which will receive funding of up to 300,000 euros for the implementation of the proposed solutions, as well as mentoring, specialised consultancy and training for attracting investments.
Eligible solutions in the Black Sea ClimAccelerator can address topics such as supporting the circular economy through technology, carbon reduction solutions, green technologies for a cleaner environment, waste management and others.
“We are glad that we can get involved in such a promising project as Black Sea ClimAccelerator,” said Christina Verchere, OMV Petrom CEO. “We are convinced that new green technologies will play a key role in building a sustainable and low-carbon future. With the launch of our 2030 Strategy, around 35 per cent of our total investments of more than 11 billion euros will go to low and zero-carbon solutions. We hope to see as many projects as possible for a cleaner future, developed within such accelerators.”
The Black Sea ClimAccelerator programme is organised by Impact Hub Bucharest, the Climate Vertical and Innovation Starter in Bulgaria, with the support of EIT Climate-KIC, which is the largest public-private innovation partnership in Europe.
