National winners receive an ENERGY GLOBE Certificate highlighting applicant and project, signed by ENERGY GLOBE Jury chairperson Maneka Gandhi and ENERGY GLOBE initiator Mr. Wolfgang Neumann.
The ENERGY GLOBE Certificate is an internationally recognized hallmark for sustainability. Many of the winners proudly present it on their websites, on image brochures or simply hang it on the wall of their offices. In some countries, the National Award is split into categories, and the winners not only get the certificates but even the popular trophies.
All international award winners will receive cash prize of € 10,000, which is divided among winners in all 6 categories. Depending on the project’s implementation location and partners, and depending on the fact if an award is presented on a regional or national level, winning projects may be presented with winner’s certificates or even gift awards or cash prizes. There is no legal claim to any prize.
- Projects can be entered by individuals, companies, clubs, organizations, schools, universities, and public authorities.
- A single project may be jointly entered by several partners (please indicate the name of the primary contact partner).
- It is also admissible for one contestant to enter several projects.
- Excluded from participation are political initiatives such as online petitions.
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.
- 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.
Projects still at an early planning stage with no implementation results may be entered as well. However, they will not be considered for the Energy Globe Awards; instead they will be evaluated by Energy Globe partners willing to offer project financing or startup consulting.
The deadline for submissions for the Energy Globe Award is November 21, 2017.
National Energy Globe Award winners will be contacted in April of the year following the call for entries.
Nominees for the international Energy Globe Award (World Award for Sustainability) will be contacted in late fall of the year following the call for entries.
The international ENERGY GLOBE Awards / World Award are presented annually in the realm of a festive ceremony.
