The mission of Ecopreneur.eu is to pursue advocacy activities with an influence on sustainable development and the green economy, advance the interests of green SMEs and green economy projects across Europe, and work towards improving environmental standards.
The organization is quickly growing and now holds seven associations from different countries of the European Union: UnternehmensGrün (Germany), Grüne Wirtschaft (Austria), Entreprendre Vert (France), MVO Nederland (Netherlands), SANNAS (Spain), SEA (Belgium) and Circular Hungary. Through Ecopreneur.eu these associations strengthen the voice of sustainable business in Brussels.
Under the roof of Ecopreneur.eu, more than 3000 sustainable businesses are represented – mostly SMEs. These are truly ethical companies striving for offering sustainable products and services in order to solve societal challenges and mitigate climate change.
The European Sustainable Business Federation is the only cross sectoral business organization advocating ambitious implementation of sustainable economy policies to achieve systemic change at the EU level and in the member states.
On the initiative of Grüne Wirtschaft (Austria), Entreprendre Vert (France) and UnternehmensGrün e.V. (Germany), Ecopreneur.eu was founded. In 2016 Ecopreneur.eu acquired official legal status as an “association internationale sans but lucratif” (aisbl), a non-profit non-governmental organization under Belgian law.
The team of Ecopreneur.eu – consisting of board members, experts and management – work closley together to help set framework conditions on EU, national and regional level for a sustainable economy.
