Energy Globe Award – An Austrian Initiative

Committed people all around the world develop solutions for the most pressing environmental problems of our time like resource scarcity, air and water pollution, erosion, climate change or dependence on fossil fuels. Although these solutions are readily available, they often remain unheard of. Energy Globe gives them a voice and presents them to a large audience to make them visible and encourage others to come up with their own innovative solution.

With 187 participating countries, projects from all over the world are submitted, ranging from small and simple initiatives to large-scale high-end ones. The national winners of the Energy Globe Award are published in cooperation with UNEP at on 5 June, the UN World Environment Day. On this date, a global awareness raising campaign starts for best practice projects, which help to save the planet. The national winners have one thing in common: all of them have understood that the environment is not protected by words but by action! Each one of us can contribute!
