Equo (also spelled Q, or eQuo) is a Spanish political party founded on 4 June 2011, when 35 different Spanish green parties agreed to merge into EQUO. It began as a foundation on 24 September 2010 with the goal of becoming "the seed and source of debate about political ecology and social equity, originating a sociopolitical movement".
The first election it contested was the Spanish general election, 2011, obtaining 915,776 votes (1.9%), making it the 7th most supported party. The party was fifth in Madrid, achieving representation thanks to the Valencian coalition Compromís-Q, in which EQUO participated.
