Applications open for 2018 Green Alley Award

The annual Green Alley Award for circular economy startups has launched its 2018 competition with a call for entries by 1 July.

The Green Alley Award was set up by the Landbell Group in 2014 as the first European award for the circular economy, encouraging innovation and startups to advance the transition from the current linear model of the economy towards one imbued with circularity. Applications should be submitted via the award’s website by 1 July, with the winners announced at the finals in Berlin on 18 October.

Last year’s winner was Finnish sustainable packaging start-up, Sulapac, which developed a fully biodegradable packaging alternative made from wood and natural adhesives without sacrificing aesthetic quality.
