After almost 6 weeks long summer break, Spanish Queen Letizia came back to work on Monday. Letizia attended the first edition of the “Retina ECO Awards” at the Giner de los Ríos Foundation in Madrid.
Organized by the newspaper El País in collaboration with the consulting firm Capgemini, the Retina ECO Awards, recognize the best projects of the year 2020 in the field of the fight against climate change and sustainability using technology.
Queen Letizia presented the awards in the four categories: “Green generation – for the generation and distribution of clean and renewable energies”, “Efficient consumption – for the ideas to reduce the energy consumption”, “Smart mobility – in the field of urban and interurban mobility, logistics and smart distribution” and “Sustainable ecosystem – for the projects with a sectorial or multi-company impact that seek sustainable development and advancement in environmental projects”. Each category had three finalists and the winner was announced during the award ceremony.
The jury of the award ceremony included Sara Aagesen, Secretary of State for Energy; Luis Abad, CEO of Capgemini Spain; Dimitri Bountolos, general director of Information Systems and Innovation at Ferrovial; Lara de Mesa, Global Director of Responsible Banking at Banco Santander; Begoña Gómez, director of the Extraordinary Chair of Social Transformation at the UCM; Cristina Rivero, Director of Industry, Energy, Environment and Climate at CEOE; Sara de la Rica, director of the ISEAK Foundation and president of the Iberdrola Sustainable Development Commission; and Jaime García Cantero, content director for Retina.
