What are the drivers and motives of eco-entrepreneurs? What are the challenges sustainable start-ups face? What are the right instruments for them to succeed?

In a European-wide survey about the European Green Economy, eco-entrepreneurs gave answers to these and similar questions. It was carried out by UnternehmensGrün e.V. in close cooperation with Ecopreneur.eu. An informative picture of the sustainable European economy can be drawn from the responses of the eco-entrepreneurs from seven different EU countries, various economic sectors, and company age/size. The most interesting results of the survey can now be read in the handout.

The handout was part of the project “Greening Europe’s Economy 2016” which was financially supported by the German Federal Environment Agency (UBA) with funds of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB).
