The NETFUND Green Innovations Award (NETFUND GIA)
The National Environmental Trust Fund Green Innovations Award (NETFUND GIA) identifies, recognises and rewards innovative projects and ideas in environmental management. The award has a comprehensive awareness program that reaches all levels of the society but particularly focuses on bottom of the pyramid (BOP). Each year NETFUND GIA identifies particular themes and categories for the competition.
The first phase of the NETFUND GIA was implemented in 2012 while the second phase was implemented in 2014. This second phase of the Award was enriched to not only upscale winning projects but to include components of incubation and commercialization.
The award comes with grants for winning initiatives. First place winners receive KES. 1,000,000, while second and third place winners receive KES. 500,000 and KES 250,000 respectively. Projects with potential for business incubation receive support worth up to KES 5,000,000.
