Zencity.jpg

ZENCITY
Category: Green Future

Designed as an intuitive tool for local governments, Zencity uses advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning to help transform millions of data points into meaningful actionable insights. Based on the needs and priorities of their communities, local governments can make smart decisions without the help of elaborate surveys, hotlines, social media tracking, and committee meetings. Zencity also takes into account the wishes of silent minorities and is already used in 160 cities.

Our new category GREEN FUTURE was presented for the very first time at our partner’s online event: Audi’s “Day of Progress” on February 9th.

LIVE LOVE RECYCLE

LIVE LOVE RECYCLE
Category: Start-Up

Live Love Recycle is the world’s first crowd-sourced recycling platform to encourage urban mining, based on a mobile application that connects citizens of Beirut with the recycling facilities. They also continuously promote best practices in terms of ecology, waste sorting and collection services, which not only address environmental challenges but also create hundreds of new jobs at the same time.

SOLAR FOODS

SOLAR FOODS
Category: Innovation

Solar Foods created a methodology to produce a unique protein-based powder called “Solein®”, born from an equally extraordinary bioprocess of electricity and air. Its fully natural fermentation process is similar to the production of yeast, resulting in the purest and most sustainable protein in the world. Instead of causing global warming, the CO2 as a raw material can be used to feed the world’s population and reduce the number of farmlands and animal keepings. Natural in taste and appearance, Solein vanishes into your daily meal, while simultaneously maintaining its rich nutritional value.

ECOSIA

ECOSIA
Category: Impact

Ecosia is like any other search engine, with one major difference: it uses its profits to plant trees. The trees benefit people, the environment and local economies. Ecosia knows trust has to be earned, which is why they publish their monthly financial reports and tree planting receipts. This way everyone can hold them accountable as they follow their journey to a reforested world. Their servers run on 100% renewable energy, which makes searching with Ecosia more than just CO2 neutral. You actually remove CO2 from the atmosphere. Ecosia is privacy friendly so they don’t sell your data to advertisers.

KIARA NIRGHIN

KIARA NIRGHIN
Category: Youngster

At 16, Kiara Nirghin won the grand prize at the Google Science Fair and the Community Impact Award with her solution to the worldwide drought. Kiara has developed a unique super-absorbent polymer that holds hundreds of times its weight in water when stored in soil. It is biodegradable, inexpensive and free of harmful chemicals, unlike the manmade materials currently used. The polymer, made entirely from waste products, improves the environment, increases the chance for plants to sustain growth by 84% during a drought and can increase food security by 73% in disaster-struck areas.

JANE GOODALL

JANE GOODALL
Category: Lifetime Achievement

Dr Goodall’s work has fundamentally changed the relationship that we as humans have with other animals. She has dedicated her life to the preservation of the world in which we live and continues to inspire so many with her passion.

KERING

KERING
Category: Green Organisation

In 2019, the World Economic Forum named Kering as the most sustainable company in luxury, apparel and accessories and second-most sustainable across all industries together. In the same year Kering initiated the first animal welfare standards for Luxury and Fashion and attained an 88% traceability for their key raw materials with the goal to reach 100% by 2025. In the words of Kering’s chair and CEO Francois-Henri Pinault, “Luxury and sustainability are one and the same and the business model of the future must be a sustainable one”.
