“We are pleased to announce a new alliance in the field of sustainability, together with a partner that seeks to connect people in order to move towards a world that is more respectful of its environment in the future. In addition, this partnership allows us to continue to strengthen our commitment in this area, which is one of the pillars of the Club’s Strategic Plan, which wants to promote initiatives that allow us to be sustainable from an economic and environmental perspective. Also, this alliance highlights once again how the brands trust in FC Barcelona to reach the whole world thanks to the wide following the Club has at a global level”.
Statement by Isaac THOMAS, CEO of VeganNation
“This historic partnership with FC Barcelona gives the both of us a unique opportunity to channel the power, the passion and the dedication sports has in the lives of people worldwide towards real impact for our planet. VeganNation’ s aspirational app and the GreenCoin token, our inspirational cryptocurrency, serve to disrupt the mainstream finance and consumption, where working with FC Barcelona will lead and foster a more environmentally responsible community of individuals and the sport itself, while protecting our planet and shaping our shared future. This partnership is the beginning of a worldwide campaign where more clubs will join the calling and create real and practical impact for our communities all over the world.”
VeganNation is an Israeli startup founded in 2018 with the mission to be an innovative and revolutionary ecosystem through its app and its business directory. Sustainability, veganism, and the environment are hot topics in the boardrooms; therefore, becoming part of the global, conscious community is investing in the future.
The mobile app has a business directory, connecting ethically-minded businesses with every part of their supply chain – from producer to consumers, as well as an app-based digital wallet that facilitates purchases and payments.
In 2021, VeganNation launched its cryptocurrency – GRNC Greencoin, currently listed on Bittrex, with a commitment to becoming an innovative and green payment option: accessible, viable, and global. More than a digital token, GRNC is a payment method through VeganNation’s Digital Wallet, making it a tradable commodity, and hence becoming much more than a profitable investment, but a real option to facilitate transactions among companies, consumers, and society as a whole.
