With the Green Alley Award, the Landbell Group has launched the first European start-up prize for the circular economy. As of now, young companies can submit their application for the Green Alley Award 2022 online at www.green-alley-award.com and get the chance to win €25,000. A jury of experienced professionals from Landbell Group and external experts will determine the winner following a live pitch, which will take place in April 2022.

 

“We want to encourage new ideas and business models to save resources and reduce waste,’ says Jan Patrick Schulz, CEO of Landbell Group. ‘There are so many creative ideas around. Our aim is to foster and promote young founders and connect them to our vast network of circular economy experts across Europe.”

The startup award is also of interest to companies looking to the future: The Green Alley Award unearths promising sustainable business solutions before they enter the mass market and offers established companies new sustainable alternatives to improve their products, services and supply chains. From sustainable materials to helpful digital solutions, the startups offer a wide range of concepts for different industries. Last year, traceless materials from Hamburg, Germany, won the award with a patent-pending technology that converts residual materials from the agricultural industry into a sustainable plastic alternative. In 2017, Finnish start-up Sulapac had presented a wood-based, biodegradable alternative to cosmetics packaging. The first winner of the Green Alley Award, Finnish start-up Repack, developed a service offering reusable shipping packaging for online retailers.
