The Green Bulgaria campaign was launched last month and its first category for green business attracted around 75 companies and business organisations. A special prize will be given to twelve of the participants: three prizes for big, small and medium sized enterprises each and three special prizes awarded for initiatives, which affect a large number of citizens, have long-term effects and are aimed at improving polluted regions.
The Green Bulgaria campaign will run until the end of the year with two more categories: the most active municipality under OPE and the greenest city. The best proposals will be assessed by an independent committee, which will comprise renowned public figures with vivid social presence. The campaign is being hold under the slogan Acting green is not just about responsibility. It is about looking into the world of tomorrow.
