Hansa Green Tour
The Hansa Green Tour Foundation was created to help raise awareness about already available knowledge, products and services in the Hanseatic region in northern Europe regarding sustainable products and sustainable technologies. To learn from 'best practises' in those cities and regions that take the lead in sustainability. The northern european Hanseatic region is one of the best performing regions regarding sustainability, renewable energy, education and innovation.
The foundation sees it as her task to connect national sustainability and cleantech organisations and initiatives in northern Europe and share available knowledge. To make this know-how, products and technologies available for those who are interested and help prevent that the wheel is reinvented in several places within Europe and even further. For this reason the foundation organises a unique business networking tour with individual matchmaking programme for its participants to the so-called 'EU Green Capitals' , the most sustainable capitals in Europe. These are those cities that have been appointed as the greenest and most sustainable cities by the European Union competition 'EU Green Capital'
Stockholm was the first city to win this prestigious title in 2010, being the Environment Capital of Europe. This city therefore played a central role in the first edition of the Hansa Green Tour 2010.
Hamburg was the second city to win this title in 2011. From 22 - 24 June the second edition of the Hansa Green Tour took place with 20 companies, 6 sponsors and many programme partners in the Netherlands and Germany.
The 3rd edition took place 13 - 15 June 2012, Hamburg again was the destination city, this time in particular the new urban district HafenCity.
We are now preparing for the fourth edition of the Hansa Green Tour from 21 - 24 August 2013 to Germany and Poland
