The event in numbers
The next generation is our key to a climate-resilient world. This category is for student projects and theses relating to sustainability and climate issues.
The solution to our climate emergency is still to be discovered! That’s why we welcome early stage startups to present their innovative solutions that have not yet been implemented as a product.
This is the only earth we have, which is why we need to emphasize the sustainable management of its resources. This category is for those companies that are contributing to cleaner natural resources such as energy, water, and forests, as well as those companies that’s products are contributing to the reduced consumption of our natural resources.
Plastics and Waste
Only 9% of the world’s plastics are recycled. How is your company contributing to reducing plastic production, increasing plastic recycling, or reducing waste in general?
There have been many recent and important achievements across the dimensions of mobility, and it could be the key to a climate-friendly world. This is for the companies invested in developing more efficient mobility: that is, more energy efficient, more climate efficient, and more innovative automobiles, public transit, aircrafts, and ships.
By 2050, 70% of the world’s population is expected to live in urban areas, which is why we need to build smarter. This category is for those companies creating sustainable and efficient communities and buildings, as well as companies supplying the sustainable building products required for healthier buildings.
Food and Agrotech
Sustainable food can reduce emissions by 25%, and water by 23%. There is a huge potential in this industry to reduce emissions! This category is for those companies ensuring that global food and agricultural systems will be able to feed humanity sustainably- that is, making more efficient use of land, water, feed, and more.
70% Climate Journey
Everyone needs to be involved and work together in order to reach a 70% reduction in emissions by 2030. To do this, we must reduce inequalities and poverty, while simultaneously strengthening health and education, especially those educating on climate issues and actions. This category is for those facilitating the climate journey through their various social actions.

The company that we believe has made the most impactful strides for a more sustainable world
