Earthshot Prize 2022 – HES predicts a winner

HES is encouraged as another of its carefully selected harmonious entrepreneurship case studies has been selected by the Earthshot Prize judges as amongst the best and most ingenious solutions to repair and regenerate the planet.

This year, UK’s Notpla. founded by Pierre Paslier and Rodrigo Garcia Gonzalez, lifted the Earthshot 2022 £1million investment prize in the “Build a Waste-free World” category for its alternative to plastic made from seaweed and plants.

Last year, Kenya’s Sanergy, founded by David Auerbach and Lindsay Stradley, was a finalist in the same category for building healthy, prosperous communities by making hygienic sanitation affordable and accessible throughout Kenya’s informal settlements.

Speaking during the Earthshot ceremony held in Boston, The Prince of Wales said:

“I believe that the Earthshot solutions you have seen this evening prove we can overcome our planet’s greatest challenges. And by supporting and scaling them we can change our future.

Alongside tonight’s winners and finalists, and those to be discovered over the years to come, it’s my hope the Earthshot legacy will continue to grow, helping our communities and our planet to thrive.”

The HES supports this view and agrees with his Royal Highness when he talks about creating a world where “…communities, nature, and oceans thrive in Harmony”

We congratulate both Notpla and Sanergy on their achievements and wish them continued success.

Can we make it three in a row?
