The impact investment fund Green for Growth Fund (GGF) announced the 15 finalists of the 2020 Clim@ competition with the best green initiatives to protect the climate. From the 200 applications they received from over 60 countries, Carbominer made it to top 15!
How were best green initiatives chosen?
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the preparation sessions and the competition itself were held virtually. The other finalists were asked to make the pre-recorded video pitches of their ideas. On the 2nd of June, they were presented online to a panel of five jury members, followed by a short Q&A session with participants.

What is Clim@ competition?
Clim@ is an international competition for innovative projects 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. Similar to the previous edition of the Clim@ competition, there was representation from the GGF target regions: Southeast Europe, the European Eastern Neighbourhood Region, and the Middle East and North Africa.
