Equo (also referred to as EQUO, and formerly 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".[10]

The first election it contested was the Spanish general election, 2011, obtaining 216,748 votes (0.9%), making it the 9th most supported party.[11] The party was fifth in Madrid,[12] achieving representation thanks to the Valencian coalition Compromís-Q, in which EQUO participated.[13]

At the national elections of 20 December 2015 EQUO joined the list of Podemos. This resulted in seats for three EQUO candidates: Juantxo López de Uralde, Rosa Martínez and Jorge Luis Bail.[14]
