Launch of the 2024 Environmental Innovation Awards Competition

The aim of the Environmental Innovation Awards is to promote ONE CREATION’s objectives and values as an investor by supporting young companies in the early stages of their existence and integrating them into a community.

Deadline for applications: 1 October 2024

After a successful first edition in 2022, the second edition in 2023 was a great success, with applications from 12 countries on 4 continents.

The candidates provided an impressive range of innovative solutions to the environmental challenges facing our planet.

Since 2010, the ONE CREATION Board of Directors has successfully financed growth-stage private companies through its private equity allocation in the field of environmental innovation.

In 2022, it recognized the need to encourage early-stage entrepreneurship in the field of environmental innovation. The Board has therefore decided to allocate a total of CHF 45,000 in the form of prizes to be shared between three companies at an earlier stage of development than it would normally consider for its own portfolio.

After being selected by a jury from 15 finalists, the three winning companies will benefit not only from the monetary contribution, but also from the visibility of being exposed to ONE CREATION’s community of investors. The winners will receive their prizes on stage at the next BUILDING BRIDGES event in early December in Geneva (Switzerland).


This year we are honored to have as a juror Mr. Raphaël Domjan, a renowned eco-adventurer who has supported ONE CREATION as an ambassador since the beginning. His vision as a leader and organizer of high-stake challenges will be very valuable in assessing the various projects.All the finalists will join the community of past winners of the Environmental Innovation Award.
