Christian Kroll

Founder and CEO of Ecosia

Headquartered in Berlin, Germany, Ecosia is the world’s largest not-for-profit search engine. The certified B Corporation has planted close to 40 million trees across 19 reforestation sites worldwide. The company is on track to plant 50 million trees by early 2019. In Autumn, Ecosia gave away shares to the Purpose Foundation, to assure that its founders can never take profits out of the company or receive dividends. In 2017 Ecosia was accredited as a B Corporation and built its own solar plant to ensure it was 100% renewable. The company was founded by Christian Kroll in 2009.
