National ENERGY GLOBE Award Monaco 2017

Submitted by: Stars'n'Bars Monte-Carlo

In Monaco the STARSNBARS restaurant has developed a specific ethos around environmentally friendly food sourcing as well and promoting public health. This is in keeping with the nation’s ethos also and as such has had a strongly positive reception. The aim of Monacolgy week has been to continue the nation’s environmentally responsible methods and to further secure them in the Monacon way of life.

Initial situation
The STARSNBARS restaurant wishes to evolve from a restaurant into a community social hub. The concept is derived from a desire to promote consistent educational classes throughout the year.

To achieve this the owners will create an ongoing environmentally friendly focal point. Rather than a single week of activities the centre will operate these programmes year round and provide a space from which to hold individual programmes.

The restaurants main innovation is the establishment of the organic gardens which is the primary source of produce used in their food service. The area has a long history of new and innovative methods to make the country environmentally friendly. Such as the use of refuse to make fuel for smaller municipalities, the establishment of free to use electric car chargers and moving government representatives away from fossil fuel burning cars and into electric cars.

We are an enthusiastic supporter of the Energy Globe Awards and its aim to strengthen society’s awareness of the necessity for ecological change, by honouring outstanding best practice projects in environmental sustainability from all parts of the world. ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA is the official Trade Promotion Organisation (TPO) of the Republic of Austria and as a country we are proud of our success in green technologies. Our support of the Energy Globe Awards continues this tradition.
