Grant Description
Competition for USA, Canada, and International individuals, companies, clubs, schools, universities, organizations, and nonprofit organizations to create sustainable projects that demonstrate achievable solutions to environmental issues. Award categories are Fire, Water, Air, Earth, Youth, and the special category of Sustainable Start-Ups.

Project Categories: 

  • Earth: Projects relating to agriculture, crops employable for energy, building materials, insulation, solar energy and overall energy-efficient construction
  • Fire: Projects relating to energy production, the efficient and sustainable use of energy in all fields of application
  • Water: Projects relating to the use and processing of drinking water, wastewater management as well as the preservation of water reserves
  • Air: Projects relating to air pollution management – indoor and outdoor – improving air quality, overall climate protection and the reduction of CO2
  • Youth: All sustainable projects to or implemented in conjunction with young people to improve environmental awareness
  • Sustainable Start-Ups: The twin challenges of reaching net zero targets and meeting SDGS targets requires society to urgently develop and scale-up transformative innovations. As such, innovation will play a key and central role in realizing the required rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented change that spans across sub-systems and thematic categories, including cities, food, energy, materials, industries, finance. Sustainable start-ups are transforming the ingenuity and creativity of innovators and entrepreneurs into businesses that provide environmental solutions but also create new green jobs and enterprises. This new category of the Energy Globe seeks to recognize start-ups in developing and emerging economies that have developed innovations that have transformative environmental benefits but also create new economic opportunities.

For additional information regarding these categories, see:

Only projects that have already been implemented will be considered for the Energy Globe Award. ‘Implemented’ means that enough progress must have been made for a project to be assessable. Examples:

  • A functioning prototype --or--
  • Partial implementation of a project consisting of several stages. (For example: 10,000 new trees are due for planting in several stages. Such a project can be submitted as early as in the course of the first implementation stage. Or: A school project has been planned for 100 schools and the pilot project was successfully implemented for the first school during the project’s initial year.)

Continuous projects and initiatives (such as ongoing garbage collecting and recycling initiatives) that have not yet been completed but are already showing initial results may be entered as well. In order to be considered for an award, projects must be submitted together with a complete description as described in the question categories provided on the submission form. In the category “Sustainable Start-Up” also ideas are possible.


  • Others (see text field entitled "Additional Eligibility Criteria" for clarification)

Additional Eligibility Criteria
Who Can Participate: Any company, organization (i.e. NGO, club, school, university), individual or public authority that contributes to climate change and other environmental issues.

- It is also admissible for one contestant to enter several projects.

The award will be assigned to the country where the project has been implemented.

Excluded from participation are political initiatives such as online petitions.
