The economy, industry, agriculture, and our consumption have all grown every year over the past decades. Because growth was good for everyone, or so the thought.

We now also know that there are limits to that growth.

Natural resources are being exhausted and there is too much CO2 emissions. This excess of emissions is causing the earth to become warmer and warmer. And that throws the planet off balance. We now see the consequences of this in the news almost daily: forest fires, floods, and other natural disasters.

We have to do it differently and fast. For our energy, we have to get rid of fossil fuels and switch to clean energy sources such as wind, sun, and hydropower. And we must use our energy much more efficiently and economically: we can also obtain it from waste and residual flows and we can also reuse energy more often, so that a circular economy is created.
We call this transition to new types of energy ‘the energy transition’.
The companies involved in these sustainable energy projects are the companies we are looking for for this year’s Theme Award.”
