Together with our supporting partner, Austria Wirtschaftsservice (aws), we have been looking for Austria's most promising start-up in the field of sustainability and green tech.

The aws managed the selection process for the Green Peak Award: Out of 80 submissions, 8 were invited to the Gala Dinner and 4 of the most promising Green Start-Ups got the opportunity to pitch their company in front of the GREEN PEAK FESTIVAL audience: ParaStruct, AgroBiogel, Livin Farms & Lignovations. The winner was determined through a voting process where the audience was allowed to choose their favorite.

Music

After all the exciting and mind changing conversations we close the first GREEN PEAK FESTIVAL 2022 on the dance floor. Behind the big Conference Stage there was an extra Music Stage with a professional sound system for our two main DJ Acts Wolfram and MÖWE and Wolfram.


MÖWE

Founded 2013 by Melanie Ebietoma and Clemens Martinuzzi, MÖWE soon evolved rapidly and won the hearts of music lovers all over the world.
MÖWE developed a unique Sound and Music Style. Melanie and Clemens are a total work of art. Both musicians know how to play the guitar, bass, piano and they can sing. This is impressive for the audience and ensures enthusiastic dancing.


Wolfram

DJ and Producer Wolfram is one of the most requested DJ exports from Austria. His name is well known among clubbers in New York, Tokyo, Ibiza and Berlin.
His heart belongs in the 80s. Techno, trashy Eurodance and Italo-Disco-Sounds are melting together into Music which stucks in your head easily, moves your legs to the rhythm and keeps the mood up till the morning.

Advisory Committee 2022

Norbert Harringer

Sustainability, and in particular how we master climate change, is one of the very big challenges.

For me personally, for AGRANA as an energy-intensive processor of agricultural raw materials, for our suppliers and customers, and for society as a whole, this is an issue of increasingly existential importance.

That is why we are pursuing an ambitious plan to switch to renewable energy sources to reduce our climate impact.

Monika Froehler

The biggest challenge and the biggest opportunity of humankind currently is to do our utmost to keep our fragile planet sustainable, healthy and prosperous for the generations to come. We are the last generation that can still do something meaningful about stopping the overheating of the planet. The good news: we have all the science, tools, skills and connectedness we need at hand, if only we truly act as global citizens.

Michael Höllerer

For me, sustainability and especially environmental protection are essential and indispensable components of everyday life and our society. I would like to contribute my ideas so that new and necessary paths can be taken in order to act “responsibly” - towards people, the environment and the economy - today and in the future.

Conscious consumption, an appreciation of the environment and the careful use of resources - that’s what sustainability means to me.
As a textile manufacturer, it is very important to me to create durable fashion that can last for generations.

Climate protection means commitment at all levels. We have to demonstrate, inform, inspire, educate and hold those legally accountable who intentionally damage the environment.

It is a huge challenge for all of us, to limit global warming and climate change.
We have to unite all our efforts to achieve sustainability in each sector of our economy.

The effects of the climate crisis are omnipresent and widely visible. Because of its complexity and drama, the climate crisis is ultimately also a crisis of our imagination.
