Ecopreneur.eu, the umbrella organization of national green economy associations, is in its founding process and presently holds five national member organizations: Grüne Wirtschaft (AT), Entreprendre Vert (FR), Greenbiz (ES), De Groene Zaak (NL) and UnternehmensGrün e.V. (DE). Since many years, the (founding) member organizations contribute actively to the political decision-making process in their respective countries and to bring forward a sustainable, green economy. The first steps towards Ecopreneur.eu were already taken in 2009 on the initiative of the national associations Grüne Wirtschaft (Austria), Entreprendre Vert (France) and UnternehmensGrün (Germany). With the official foundation of the umbrella organization in January 2015 the common goals receive a strong voice in Brussels.

With Ecopreneur.eu we wish to set a course for sustainable economic policies on European level.
