The project “Greening Europe’s Economy” was initiated by UnternehmensGrün to support the European-wide transition towards a sustainable and climate-friendly economy. We wish to promote research and innovation and to encourage a future-proof economy able to mitigate and adapt to climate change. The project aims at facilitating a Green Economy on a European level by supporting eco-entrepreneurs being key actors in transforming the economy towards sustainability. We set up a survey that gives us an opportunity to hear what eco-entrepreneurs in Europe need for creating and successfully running a sustainable business. What are the main obstacles? What role do consumer play? And many more questions asking about the challenges of everyday business. Numerous Entrepreneurs and Start-ups participated European-wide to help us greatly to further improve our work in bringing forward a sustainable economy on the national and European level.
The project “Greening Europe’s Economy” was developed by UnternehmensGrün e.V., the Federal Association of Green Business, in cooperation with Ecopreneur.eu and is financially supported by the German Environment Agency (UBA) with funds of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB).
