GasN2, pioneering industrial sustainability

Spain, in line with other developed economies, has an industrial sector responsible for 24% of total energy consumption and 16% of CO2 emissions in the country, according to data from the International Energy Agency (IEA).

The United Nations, in its Climate Action Plan 2020-2030, has set targets to reduce electricity consumption and carbon emissions by 2030 (-35% and -45% per capita respectively) and to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

GasN2’s activity contributes directly to meeting the targets set and to the sustainability of the industry in general.

Oriol Martínez-Huguet, Founder & CEO of GasN2:

GasN2 has been looking for an investment partner to drive the company’s growth while maintaining the essence of the company: prioritizing innovation in environmental and sustainable technologies while being close to our clients and team.”

Gustavo Barroeta, partner at Miura Partners:

Together with Oriol, Pau, Bernat and the rest of the team, we will drive the growth plan while preserving the company’s core values.”
