Founded in 2010 by François Bordes, MyCO2 is a company that develops innovative solutions for environmental information and the fight against climate change. It enables companies to calculate, communicate and improve environmental information of their products and services.
The ambition of MyCO2 is to become a leader of environmental information to consumers in France and abroad by providing services such as environmental product labelling and an ecological loyalty programme. Moreover, MyCO2 offers environmental management tools and consulting.
