What is Clim@ competition?

Clim@ is an international competition for innovations in the fields of sustainable energy and resource efficiency that demonstrate climate impact. It is widely supported by the European initiative ‘EU4Energy’. 

It was the second Clim@ competition awarding innovative ideas aiming to beat climate change. This year there were 200 applications from over 60 countries. Similar to the previous edition of Clim@, there was representation from the GGF target regions. There were teams from Southeast Europe, the European Eastern Neighbourhood Region, and the Middle East and North Africa. 

The Green for Growth Fund is an impact investment fund that has already delivered several investments worth €1 billion to combat climate change and boost sustainable economic growth, by investing in the best green initiatives that aim to reduce CO2 emissions, resource usage and energy consumption.
