Equo (also spelled Q, or eQuo) is a Spanish political party founded on 4 June 2011. 35 different Spanish green parties decided to merge into EQUO, making it a historical date for Spanish green politics, an ideology that had always been divided into many parties in Spain. It began as a foundation on 24 September 2010 having as a goal becoming "the seed and source of debate about political ecology and social equity, originating a sociopolitical movement".[4]

The first election it contested was the Spanish general election, 2011, obtaining 915,776 votes (1.9%), making it the 7th most supported party,[5] and the fifth in Madrid,[6] with representation thanks to the Valencian coalition Compromís-Q, in which EQUO participated.[7]

In Catalonia, the European Green Party is represented by Initiative for Catalonia Greens.

At the national elections of 20 December 2015 EQUO participated in the list of Podemos. This resulted in seats for three candidates of EQUO: Juantxo López de Uralde, Rosa Martínez and Jorge Luis Bail.[8]
