The second editon of the Hansa Green Tour to Hamburg took place 22nd - 24th June 2011.

The Hansa Green Tour 2011 started in Groningen at the Rabobank, main sponsor in the 2011 edition. After registration and a warm welcome by Rabobank Groningen the tour was kicked off by RTL Television wheaterforecaster Reinier van de Berg, a well-known climatologist. His very inspiring presentation can be downloaded here.
All participants now drove with their electric and biofuel cars to the first stop in Delfzijl to visit the brand new E.On Waste to Energy facility. Here participants learned more about converting waste into energy.
From the E.On facility in Delfzijl, participants now drove into Germany for the next stop in Aurich. Here the first networking event was organized at Sparkasse Aurich together with our partner Climate Center North.
Here several interesting presentations (see programme) were followed by a networking lunch with regional authorities and enterpreneurs.
After fast-charging the electric cars with high voltage the participants set course to City Airport Bremen. Participants were allowed to drive in convoy over the runway and received a warm welcome!
After learning more about Green Sustainable Airports we went out to the city center to meet our programme partner Wirtschaftsförderung Bremen (Bremen Economic Development). After a very interesting presentation about sustainable entrepreneurship ('Unternehmen Nachhaltigkeit') a typical German 'Grill Abend' was organized by Bremen Economic Development at the Wilhelm Wagenfeld Haus.
This first day was closed with a nice guided city walk in Bremen's beautiful ancient city center where the history of the Hansa, core geographical region for our Hansa Green Tour, could be felt and seen everywhere. A city that can be proud of its glorious past.
The second day the tour went first to Bremerhaven to visit the exciting Klimahaus Bremerhaven, a worldclass climate & sustainability exploration and education center. After our climatic tour 8 degrees east around the world we set out to our final destination, Hamburg.
Due to severe traffic congestion several participants arrived more then 2 hours late for our networking programme at the Marriott Hotel, our eco event partner in Hamburg.
Together with our programme partners in Hamburg, Hamburg Business Development Corporation, Bundesverband für Windenergie HH and the Netherlands Business Support Office we decided to cancel the last part of the event, a very interesting visit to HafenCity and the Sustainability Pavilion ('Nachhaltigkeitspavillion').
As HafenCity is europe's largest sustainable innercity development project we will have to come back to Hamburg with the Hansa Green Tour in 2012 and make the Sustainable City the central theme for 2012!
Hansa Green Tour 2010
The first edition of the Hansa Green Tour to Stockholm took place 27th - 30th September 2010.
We travelled with a small group of companies to do a short alternative version of the intended Hansa Green Tour. The goal of this networking event was for the participants to see for themselves the latest developments in sustainable solutions in Scandinavia and to learn from 'best practises'.
From Oslo the journey continued to Stockholm for a cleantech tour to the highlights of this sustainable city. Under guidance of a senior architect, our group visited the sustainable city district Hammarby Sjostad and the underground waste sort system from Envac. This district attracts visitors from all over the globe to be inspired for sustainable city planning.
The experiences learned from Hammarby will also be used in the new to be built citydistrict Royal Seaport to even increase sustainable living standards. The Dutch delegation visited the new infocenter and is very interested in exploring business opportunities with local partners.
After meetings with Stockholm Business Development Region and the Sweden Green Tech Builing the journey continued towards Linköping to meet Cleantech Östergötland, one of the leading cleantech networks in Sweden.
