Energy Globe World Award 2016


(C) Energy Globe Foundation

World’s Best Environmental Projects Awarded at the UN Climate Change Conference in Marrakesh

10 November the Oscar of the environment - The Energy Globe Award - was presented in a spectacular and interactive ceremony to the most sustainable environmental projects worldwide. Amidst great rejoicing and attention, the internationally renowned ceremony took place at the UN Climate Change Conference in Marrakesh. Out of 2,000 submissions the international jury selected 17 projects in 6 categories.

Austrian retail chain Hofer – a pioneer in the food retail in German speaking countries who works in a completely CO2 neutral way - celebrated victory in the category Air. All emissions that are not saved through the large-scale campaign, are compensated through climate protection projects. The unique concept of the avoidance of emissions, selection of regional products, as well as integration of customers and employees helped them to win in this category. Besides Hofer, projects from the USA and India were nominated in this category. A software from the USA for monitoring the infrastructure in data centers helps center managers run their facilities at peak efficiency. Armed with real-time information, managers can plan and manage capacity, minimize downtime, reduce energy consumption and save money. The Indian social enterprise Pollinate Energy trains people to provide renewable energy to India’s city slum dwellers.
