When you click that ‘buy’ button in the webshop, a complex, global system is set in motion. One that turns natural resources into a product on your doorstep. But also one that depletes the earth, leaves mountains of waste and showed vulnerabilities during the pandemic. That’s why Blue Tulip Awards Consumption & Production theme is looking for innovation that allows us to produce and consume, without the negative impact on our planet.
Blue Tulip Awards hunting for innovation
Delving into the wide range of innovations is a team of experts, gathered for the Blue Tulip Awards. We spoke with three of them: Martijn Lopes Cardozo is CEO of Circle Economy and partner of the Awards; Adriaan Lieftinck and Edward Sibeijn are founders of MEZT, which won the Blue Tulip Award last year; Tatiana Glad is Company Lead of Impact Hub Amsterdam and jury lead of the Consumption & Production theme.
