Sustainability is increasingly recognised to be important for the future of business. Thousands of professionals in existing organisations work on sustainability topics, or want to do so, but often they are not able to have the impact that they could have. A lack of motivation, strong network, or skills & knowledge hinder their efforts. As a consequence, sustainability is currently not promoted with maximum effectiveness in business, even though change in existing organisations is urgently needed.

Our local networking events and workshops motivate and empower business changemakers who join us to promote sustainability with maximum effectiveness. We make these changemakers, our “Buzzers”, true catalysts for change.

Our Vision

Sustainability is the new normal in business.

Our Mission

Connecting changemakers to drive environmental, social and economic sustainability in business.

Our local events are taking place every 3-6 weeks and are organised by local entrepreneurs, often volunteers, in their own local communities that we call “GreenBuzz Chapters”. Chapters are independent entities, but supported & coached by the global backbone and in vivid contact with each other for best-practice exchange and discussions. GreenBuzz is a non-profit organization, locally and globally – we are fueled by the passion to make sustainability the new normal in business and society.

GreenBuzz, founded by Falko Paetzold, came to life in Zurich in 2010 and was joined by the Berlin team in 2014. These two chapters combine a reach of almost 7’000 individuals and regular events usually have around 100 attendees. In August 2016, we set up a global team to spread our format and lessons learned. Bern, Geneva, and Amsterdam are operational since late 2016 and will soon be followed by more locations.

Get in touch with us and help spread the passion for sustainability and join us in working towards our vision to make sustainability the new normal in business!
