Green Alley Award – the award for sustainable innovation

We all face a major challenge: together, we must reduce the over-exploitation of natural resources by the consumer industry.

We are always looking for new solutions to waste problems that companies encounter on a daily basis. This is why Jan Patrick Schulz, CEO of Landbell Group, launched the Green Alley Award in 2014. This annual award promotes startups in the European circular economy.

The first startup award of this kind became a success: a total of over 1,600 applications from more than 30 countries reached us. Including many impressive innovations for a more sustainable world without waste.

The award ceremony is a unique networking event for companies, experts, and supporters of the circular economy.

Impressive facts and figures

Our mission is to transform the linear economy into a true circular economy. We maintain the value of products, materials and resources for as long as possible in the economic cycle. At the same time, the goal is to produce as little waste as possible.
