GREEN AWARDS WINNERS 2023

Antoinette Taus

SPECIAL AWARD

Antoinette Taus is a Filipino-American award-winning actor, singer, host, and Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).

As a passionate advocate of the UN SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), Antoinette leads programs centered on solutions focused on sustainability, climate action, women empowerment, inclusive resilience, and the circular economy, in order to unite more people in action towards creating a better future for all, without leaving anyone behind.

formo

FOOD & BEVERAGE

The dairy industry alone is responsible for 4% of global GHG emissions. Planetary boundaries are at the limit, and the demand for animal protein will double by 2050. Most metrics show producing proteins through microorganisms instead of animals as way better for the planet. This is where Formo jumps in. Instead of cows, microorganisms are teached to produce delicious, functional protein and to make the cheese humans love. By swapping livestock for microorganisms Formo wants to massively reduce the impact of protein consumption on our planet. Formo does this without challenging people to compromise on the foods and traditions they adore. This is a revolution of the way we produce food.

Godelmann

BUILDING

GDM.KLIMASTEIN, a Generation 4.0 ecological surfacing, combines everything Godelmann developed in 40 years about sustainability and climate change mitigation. The patented system provides answers to the most urgent questions in urban planning and has a degree of evaporation like a meadow. This stone infiltrates water on site while permanently filtering traffic-related pollutants from stormwater, thus protecting groundwater. It can store water, evaporate at the soil surface, and improve air quality by breaking down nitrogen oxides. It actively cools the overheated urban environment by evaporation.

GREEN AWARDS SINGAPORE WINNERS 2022

Green Carbon by TUM

Category: Green Building

The Green Carbon Project is focused on the conversion of the greenhouse gas, CO2 to oleaginous algae biomass. The resulting algae triglycerides (oil) are used in a holistic chemo-enzymatic approach for conversion in biogenic resins and acrylonitrile based carbon fibers. The combination of carbon fibers and resins results in carbon negative carbon fiber composites, a new lightweight material, that can replace steel, aluminium and concrete. At the end of the life cycle it can be deposited in the ground to generate a permanent CO2 sink, as documented in the World climate report IPCC1.5.

Edible Garden City

Category: Community

Edible Garden City advocates the grow-your-own-food movement in cities around the world, starting with Singapore. Food gardens in urban areas are designed, built and maintained for restaurants, schools, hotels, residences and more. Since 2012, they have completed more than 260 food gardens in Singapore, in notable locations such as Marina Bay Sands. Grown products, such as herbs, flowers and vegetables are supplied to food outlets and families directly. Furthermore, farming workshops are designed and conducted for companies and schools, and farming curriculums are run for schools.
