Europe's most important environmental and business awards, the GreenTec Awards, were presented on May 29, 2016. The winners were honored before approximately 1,000 guests and prominent speakers at a spectacular stage event at the Internationales Congress Center at Messe München.
Previously anyone in the world was invited to submit an idea, concept, or well-established project, product, or service they had developed—from start-ups to global players, from voluntary posts to research projects. The winners in 14 categories and five special awards were chosen by an esteemed judging panel and also by the general public via an online vote. The entire competition process has been certified by TÜV NORD.
