The best environmental and sustainable projects in Romania were awarded, on Wednesday, January 18, during the second edition of the Green Report Gala, the most prestigious annual event dedicated to the recognition of initiatives in the field of sustainability in Romania by companies, public institutions or individuals.

 

The Green Report Gala, held this year under the theme “Man, the King of Nature”, represents an unprecedented project in the field of environmental issues in Romania and aims to recognize and award the local merits of companies, authorities and public figures in the fight against global environmental threats.

For the transition to sustainability to be successful, it is essential to recognize and reward achievements in this field, precisely to encourage and stimulate other relevant initiatives, both to protect the environment and people.

Based on a clear and transparent mechanism, the 81 projects entered in the 11 categories of the Green Report competition were evaluated by the jury made up of specialists in environmental and sustainability issues: Ramona Jurubiță, Country Managing Partner, KPMG Romania & Vice President of the Council of Foreign Investors , Marius Brînzea, Strategy Director, Reciclad’OR, Andreea Mitiriță, Partner, PwC Romania, Laura Vrînceanu (Ciobanu), Senior Manager, Climate Change and Sustainability, EY Romania, Sorin Elisei, Director, Leader of Sustainability and Energy Practices, Deloitte Romania and Florin Stoican, President, Kogayon Associations and Văcărești Natural Park.

Barna Tanczos, Minister of the Environment, Waters and Forests said:

”I welcome the initiative of the publication Green Report which on the occasion of this edition is held under the motto “Man, King of Nature” and awards people from companies, public institutions, public persons, who found local solutions to global environmental problems, aware that our only chance is a sustainable world. And if we have assumed this role as sovereigns of nature, we must not forget that a king must be gentle, understanding and attentive to the needs of the kingdom, find solutions and provide an example of civic behavior, involvement and responsibility. This is how we should all behave in relation to nature. With gentleness, with understanding, to always try to identify problems and find solutions, to get involved with responsibility, because, if we look at things more philosophically, we are not the masters of the planet. The planet does not exist because of us, we are the ones who exist because of the planet! The planet is the home of our body and just as we take care of the houses in which we live with our family, so we should take care of the planet, which is the basis of our existence.”

Raluca Fișer, president of the Green Revolution Association, said:

The second edition of the Green Report Gala celebrates the initiatives of those who assume both the power and the responsibility they have towards their peers and the environment. Regardless of whether they represent the business environment, local and central public institutions or civil society, they make considerable and constant efforts to achieve a common goal: sustainability. We thank and appreciate everyone who entered the competition. Thanks to them we know that our initiative and efforts are rewarded. All awarded projects are examples of good practice for the ideas and initiatives undertaken, above all for the results. We believe that they can also inspire other companies, public institutions or non-governmental organizations to understand better and faster the benefits of a more environmentally friendly approach.
