One of the biggest challenges humanity is facing today is the drain on natural resources by conventional consumer industries, and the immense amount of waste caused by disposable items. For a fundamental change, policies like the ban on single-use plastics in the EU are not enough. Establishing an economy that sustainably uses resources needs true innovators.
To connect like-minded people and help start-ups take their next step, Landbell Group, the German-based environmental and chemical solutions supplier, has established Europe’s first start-up prize for the Circular Economy. The Award recognises businesses facilitating Circular Economy innovations.
The competition, for start-ups less than 5 years old and located in Europe, is now open for submission.
