This is what we are
proud and thankful for

The Green Tech Valley Cluster lives and breathes climate protection and has operated on a climate-neutral basis since it was founded. How do we achieve this? We make the effort to travel even longer distances by bus, train or electric car and pay very close attention to our green footprint. To this end, we regularly assess our carbon footprints and take ongoing action to reduce emissions.

The Green Tech Valley Cluster is rated as No. 1 in several international rankings (VDI/VDE 2018, Global Cleantech Directory 2012, Cleantech Group 2010) and has been awarded the Regiostars Award from the European Commission as well as the Austrian Cluster Prize 2020.

There is a lot to like about the Green Tech Valley Cluster. Our partners appreciate us and our work very much. And they let us know. The positive feedback we get makes us proud and allows us to grow beyond ourselves every day.

"Der Green Tech Valley Cluster is a real turbobooster and BDI is its proud partner."
