While presenting the awards, Gilles Gantelet, Director at the European Commission’s DG Environment, said: "The EU is at the crossroads of its transformation towards a more sustainable economy, and businesses are vital to drive this change forward. All the finalists of this year’s awards have taken major steps to bring us closer to a pollutionfree, low-carbon and circular economy, and we are here to celebrate their
achievements. These enterprises prove that eco-innovation isn’t just about protecting our planet – it’s also an excellent business decision, playing a key role in European
competitiveness."
