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.
The solutions in our 2013 edition of Sustainia100 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.
Sustainia100 presents 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.
“Congratulations to the Sustainia100 for 2013. They are the true action heroes of sustainability.”
Becoming a Sustainia100 solution starts by sending us details about your solution. Be brief and be bright; put together a clear and concise description of your project, provide us with links and files to supplement it. The Sustainia secretariat will then consider each submission and evaluate the best of candidates with the Sustainia100 Advisory Board.
Last year our Sustainia100 guide included solutions from 45 countries such as India, Thailand, Burkina Faso, Kenya and Uganda. Among the solutions were solar solutions for rural Africa, a zero-carbon factory, sustainable cooking fuels and hybrid ships.

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 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Dr. Rajendra Pachauri and EU Commissioner Connie Hedegaard.
