"It is our duty and responsibility to assure that our young people will have an intact environment tomorrow." With these words Wolfgang Neumann launched the World ENERGY GLOBE Award for Sustainability in 1999, today’s most prominent and prestigious environmental prize.

From all over the world, projects are showcased that conserve and protect our resources or that employ renewable energy. The goal is to present successful sustainable projects to a broad audience, for many of our environmental problems already have good, feasible solutions. Each year some 800 projects and initiatives from all over the world are submitted to compete for the award in the categories Earth, Fire, Water, Air and Youth.

The ENERGY GLOBE is awarded annually in the realm of a huge television gala that is broadcast worldwide to some three billion households. The gala has already taken place in Japan, Canada and (a special honor for the environmental prize) in the Plenary Hall of the European Parliament in Brussels. Prominent guests who presented awards have included Mikhail Gorbachev, Peter Falk (Columbo), Robin Gibb (Bee Gees), Martin Sheen and Nigel Kennedy.

The ENERGY GLOBE Award has the following structure:
  • National: in over 100 nations, e.g., ENERGY GLOBE Award Austria
  • International: World ENERGY GLOBE Award for Sustainability
The ENERGY GLOBE Award is presented in the Categories Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Youth and distinguishes particularly sustainable projects. The Award is presented at the national and international level.
