The world’s most important environmental award ceremony, the “Energy Globe World Awards”, and “Energy Globe Days” will take place this year in Espoo, Finland.
The Global Chamber Platform (GCP), the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the Club of Rome and the Energy Globe Foundation will adopt an international declaration for “Circular Economy”.
The Energy Globe Award was founded in Austria exactly 20 years ago and annually honours people and companies that implement sustainable projects and products to protect our environment in practice. To date, more than 25,000 projects and initiatives from 187 countries have been submitted, making the Energy Globe Award the world’s most prestigious environmental prize. The aim of this private, non-profit institution from Austria is to present the best solutions for our environmental problems nationally and globally and to motivate people, governments, organisations and the business community to act in a joint and sustainable fashion for a future that is worth living.
It is for this reason that the founder of Energy Globe, Wolfgang Neumann, is optimistic: “Due to the variety of submissions, there are already Solutions for every environmental problem on our planet. Just as we have all solved the ozone hole problem together, we will also succeed in aligning our technologies as well as our awareness and actions to the lasting benefit of our environment when it comes to climate change.
For the first time ever, a declaration of intent will be signed during the Energy Globe Days in order to make the Circular Economy known worldwide and to introduce a basis for its implementation. “What is being referred to the Circular Economy is the basis for sustainable economic development and a prerequisite for effective, sustainable environmental and resource protection,” said Christoph Leitl, founder and chairman of the Global Chamber Platform (GCP). The Global Chamber Platform (GCP), the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the Club of Rome and the Energy Globe Foundation will be signatories.
