Klearia is working towards a more efficient and environmentally-friendly industry through strong innovations in developing the sensors of the future. One week after receiving the Solar Impulse Foundation's label, Bpifrance Le Hub and France Digitale unveiled the first mapping of startups with a positive impact on society, the environment, and the economy! Klearia is proud to be listed in the Industry category and the subcategory Smart and Sustainable Factory, contributing to the growth of the French TechForGood sector.
The Global Drive for Sustainable Impact
The United Nations has laid out 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030, defining the key areas for global Impact and representing international consensus. France is experiencing a significant momentum in this regard, marked by several signs of collective awareness. Alongside gradual shifts in consumption habits, there is a growing alignment of investment policies with ESG criteria, the creation of Impact investment funds, legislation supporting ecological and solidarity transitions, and a clear shift towards sustainable strategies among major corporations. Startups with an Impact focus are playing a crucial role in this changing landscape and are increasingly prominent in the French entrepreneurial scene. Bpifrance Le Hub and France Digitale have collaborated to present a comprehensive view of this thriving ecosystem.
Key Statistics from the Mapping:
A total of 727 startups are featured in this inaugural edition.
Two-thirds of these startups have secured funding.
Collectively, these startups have raised €4.4 billion since their inception.
These innovative companies currently employ 17,802 individuals as of June 2021.
A substantial 61% of the startups in the mapping are less than five years old.
A Vision for the Future
As Frédéric Mazzella, Founder and President of BlaBlaCar and co-President of France Digitale, emphasizes, "We are witnessing the rise of Impact champions. France has a genuine opportunity to become a global reference in this field and make Impact the norm. Beyond the direct effects of these companies on our environment's improvement, this positive positioning of France makes it an attractive destination for capital and talent from around the world." Klearia is honored to be part of this movement, contributing to a more sustainable and impactful future for all. To learn more about Klearia's innovative solutions, visit our website.
