Founder & CEO, Ecosia
Christian Kroll is the founder and CEO of Ecosia, the green search engine that uses its profits to plant trees. He launched Ecosia in 2009 after witnessing the devastating impact of social inequality and massive deforestation while traveling through Nepal and South America. Ecosia has gone on to become the world’s largest not-for-profit search engine and a world-leading tree-planting organization, planting over 125 million trees in more than 30 countries. In 2014 Ecosia became Germany’s first certified B Corporation, and in 2018 Christian gave away his right to ever sell Ecosia or take dividends out of the company.
