Between 2019 and 2021 Gonzalo held the global role as one of the two UN High Level Climate Action Champions for the Conference of the Parties (COP) and from that position he co-designed and co-led the global campaigns Race To Zero, Race To Resilience and GFANZ.
Prior to this role, he co-founded and ran TriCiclos, one of the most recognized Latin American companies in the circular economy and recycling. Inspired by ten 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. After launching in Chile, Triciclos expanded to Brazil and now operates in thirteen countries in Latin America. The company was also the first certified B corporation established outside North America. Gonzalo also co-founded Sistema B and is a member of the board at BLab Global.
He is also a board member of the Global Foodbanking Network, and has been a member of the Chilean National Committees on Water, Climate Action, Green Hydrogen, Electromobility and Circular Economy. He is currently chairman of the board of TriCiclos and co-leader of Manuia, a strategic consulting firm founded in 2021 by TriCiclos, dedicated to helping companies incorporate ESG criteria in their strategy and execution, for the generation of triple impact.
