National ENERGY GLOBE Awards
The national ENERGY GLOBE Awards distinguish sustainable best project submissions of a country (e.g. ENERGY GLOBE Germany, ENERGY GLOBE Nicaragua, etc.).
With 161 participating countries, the ENERGY GLOBE Award is today’s most prestigious environmental award. It annually honors projects that make a contribution to conserving resources, improving air and water quality, energy efficiency, renewable energy and creates awareness in these areas. The awards for these many projects are presented in their recipients’ individual countries in cooperation with our partner, Advantage Austria, the official Austrian Foreign Trade Promotion Organization of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber.
National winners receive an ENERGY GLOBE Certificate highlighting applicant and project, signed by ENERGY GLOBE Jury chairperson Maneka Gandhi and ENERGY GLOBE initiator Mr. Wolfgang Neumann.
The ENERGY GLOBE Certificate is an internationally recognized hallmark for sustainability. Many of our winners proudly present it on their websites, on image brochures or simply hang it on the wall of their offices. In some countries the National Award is split into categories, and the winners not only get the certificates but even popular trophies.
We also present all national Energy Globe winners annually here in the context of a global online campaign under the patronage of UNESCO and in cooperation with UNEP to launch the United Nations World Environment Day, June 5. These projects represent 165 success stories of 165 dedicated and creative people to whom the future of our planet is a concern. Their projects make an important contribution to a sustainable future. They also give inspiration and hope and offer solutions that can be implemented elsewhere. Energy Globe provides these people a platform and a voice for today's most important message: we can all contribute to a livable, sustainable future.
The national award ceremonies have been running since April this year.
