The Best Green Project Award was handed out in tonight’s BR Awards Gala by Bill Avery, Founding Partner of Business Review.

Winner: Raiffeisen Bank Romania for the “I’Velo Urban” project

The award was received by Steven van Groningen, CEO of Raiffeisen Bank Romania, who said: “Thank you and congratulations for 20 years of Business Review, I’ve seen it grow over this period. I have been a member of the jury before, I know it’s hard work. Bucharest is a city we all love, but there are a few problems. We all know that its score is very low when we talk about air quality and traffic. I saw that statistically a person in Bucharest spends about 9 days per year in traffic. We have to invest in urban ecology and getting people out on bikes is a part of this. We are trying to stimulate biking in Romania – please try the bikes in Bucharest, it’s not as bad as it seems!”

The objectives of the I’Velo Urban project are the reduction of air pollution in Bucharest, by increasing the number of citizens who use bicycles as daily means of transportation, and decreasing traffic congestion, with an impact on both the environment and the health of those living in the Capital.
