The Energy Globe Award has been recognized as the world award for sustainability and today’s most renowned environmental award worldwide. Its main purpose is to introduce innovative and sustainable projects to a broader audience and this way, increase awareness that many solutions to existing problems are already available.



Over the past 20 years, the Energy Globe database has received more than 20,000 project applications. This year, more than 2,500 projects were submitted by more than 180 countries. The award is honored annually to the best sustainable projects that are addressing environmental issues.
