About the SEA

"Sustainability is in our hands" – the slogan of the Sustainable Entrepreneurship Award, or SEA for short, the first international award honouring sustainable business practices.

The SEA is a great deal more than just a sustainability award, however. It has been designed to trigger a lifestyle revolution and establish the concept of Sustainable Entrepreneurship as THE economic model of the future. Companies are the engines of the economy, and by anchoring Sustainable Entrepreneurship firmly in their core business, they can cease to be part of the problem, and become part of the solution instead.

With the SEA, we specifically search for and support entrepreneurs who have recognised a social problem and linked its solution with an innovative and profitable business idea. Irrespective of the size of the company, industry or country of origin, anybody can submit a new idea, project or business model based upon the principles of Sustainable Entrepreneurship.

The SEA enables us to provide companies with a major international platform which is already having an impact. The SEA honours companies which act for the good of society, the economy and the environment – in harmony with their entrepreneurial interests.

The ten best projects submitted are nominated for the award. The most outstanding of these final projects then receives an award of € 10,000.

The SEA Award includes the following categories: Best Project, Best Idea and SEA of Excellence.
