Green Business Challenge (1)


The transition to a green economy is one of the biggest challenges we face today and a significant turning point in how we interact with our planet’s resources. It calls for reimagining our reliance on traditional materials and advocating for a sustainable approach to organic resources, innovative biotechnologies, and green business models. To do so, we need the best ideas and brightest minds to unite!

We are excited to launch the first-ever Biobased edition, which will shine its light on the future generation of sustainability pioneers equipped with the skills to propel the biobased revolution and circular economy forward. What obstacles do governments, businesses, and communities face in embracing biobased alternatives? How can organisations speed the transition to a resource-resilient future by fostering bio-innovation or improving biowaste management? The cases vary each edition but are always 100% real.
