#MakeItGreen Ulule Veolia

In France, Veolia and Ulule launch a call for projects #MakeItGreen

Veolia in France and Ulule - a crowdfunding platform - are launching the #MakeItGreen call for projects. The aim is to select the 5 best entrepreneurial initiatives in favour of the environment, revolving around the circular economy, protecting biodiversity and fighting climate change. Any legal entities, associations and foundations, as well as individuals who may have a project devoted to the protection of the environment are eligible to participate in this operation.

 

Following a Veolia and Ulule selection process in 2020, the 5 successful projects will benefit from financial and operational support for their fundraising campaigns on the Internet.

The principle: for each euro paid by an Internet user, Veolia will contribute one euro up to a maximum of 2,000 euros per project. Entrepreneurs will also benefit from the expertise of Veolia and Ulule in terms of personalised support to optimise the environmental, societal and commercial impact of their initiative.

To take part: submit your project and see all the candidate projects on the dedicated themed channel: Make it green.

Héro, the ambassador for the operation

Chosen as an ambassador for #MakeItGreen, the start-up Héro specialises in the production of textiles made from 100% recycled materials. Its flagship product: a sweatshirt made entirely from recycled plastic bottles.

Today we are facing a huge challenge: to change most current production methods. #MakeItGreen is an excellent opportunity to create bridges between young projects and large groups in this respect, and to improve our impact,
FLORENT LIÉNARD
FOUNDER OF HÉRO
