Sustainia100 is an annual guide to 100 innovative solutions from around the world that presents readily available projects, initiatives and technologies at the forefront of sustainable transformation.
Our 2013 edition of Sustainia100 is coming out June 9th – and there is plenty to look forward to! Sustainia received 500+ submissions from 79 countries for this year’s guide. The final 100 solutions are deployed in two thirds of the world’s countries -including Kenya, India, Mexico and South Africa, making the Sustainia100 guide reflect innovation from the traditional western hubs as well as parts of the world that are normally not well covered.
Identifying 100 innovative, sustainable solutions in 10 key sectors, spanning from energy, transportation to fashion, food and education, Sustainia100 gives investors, regional developers, business leaders, politicians, and consumers in-depth insights to the most promising projects and technologies within their field.

Every year, a committee reviews the solutions from Sustainia100, and awards one solution with Sustainia Award at a ceremony in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The Award Committee consists of: Arnold Schwarzenegger (Honorary Chair), Former Prime Minister Gro Harlem Brundtland, Chair of UN’s Climate Panel Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, EU Commissioner Connie Hedegaard, and Chairman of Nobel Sustainability Trust Gustaf Nobel.
