UN High Level Champion for Climate Action, B Lab Global Board Member Co-Founder of Sistema B
Nominated by the Chilean presidency and the United Nations as the High Level Climate Champion for the 25th Conference of the Parties (COP25) to the United Nations Climate Change Convention (UNFCCC), to mobilize climate action in non- state actors around the world. Prior to this, he co-founded and ran TriCiclos, one of the most recognized Latin American companies in circular economy and recycling. Inspired by 10 years of running traditional food businesses where he witnessed the waste generated by the private sector, he aimed to offer a transformative service that would help the environment while also being financially sustainable. Using business and entrepreneurial skills, he redirected efforts to ideals and passion for sustainability and the environment. TriCiclos currently operates in 13 countries in Latin America, where their mission is to foster new designs and business models for a world without waste. TriCiclos was also the first company to become a certified B corporation outside North America. Gonzalo cofounded Sistema B and is a member of the board at BLab global. Today, he is an advisor for the National Committees of Water, Green Hydrogen, Electromobility and Circular Economy.
