The Association of Environmental Enterprises was founded in 1992 by the cooperation of 26 companies. The Association is a business federation of the environmental industry. It realises lobbying keeping in mind the principles of environmental protection.
The members of the associations are environmental servicing companies, engineering companies, R+D+I companies and companies involved in water supply, water treatment , waste treatment, waste recovery, air pollution control, soil remediation, noise and vibration reduction, including the manufacturers and distributors of these equipment. The Association has now about 260 members representing the environmental industry. Our associated members are universities, research institutes and green NGOs. The supporting members are large companies, which respect the principles of environmental protection.
The milestones in our history of more than 20 years *:
1995 The Act on Protection of the Environment came into force, which declared the importance of environmental protection and the environmental industry as well. The opinions of the association are reflected in more parts of the texts of this Act. We have started with the yearbook on the Environmental industry, which was distributed to the local governments and the partners of our members for free.
1998 The Association has become organisation for public benefit.
We have started to develop the XIR Internet database with profiles and contact details of environmental companies to contribute to transparency professional information.
2000 we have organised the first 2 days’ meeting for the members, which is still a popular regular event.
We have changed the name of the Association. The Hungarian name reflects the importance of the service providers and producers as well.
2001 We have organised the 1st Environmental Ball, which was followed by 11 success events in the following years. The Ball provides the event celebration to the Awards for Environmental Protection. Each year we award companies which performed excellent environmental activities and a person to acknowledge a life dedicated to the principles of environmental protection.
1995-2008 The Association participated on the ÖKOTECH International Environmental Exhibition.
2007 We launched the KEXPORT Program to promote the export of innovative environmental technology. The KEXPORT became a Cluster in 2011.
2009 The association organised the 1st ÖKOINDUSTRIA International Environmental Industry Exhibition.
Due to the well prepared work of the founders, the main objectives, the mission, and the activities in the legal statute of the Association remained the same.
- We have found an Association, which gives priority to the environmental principles comparing to the companies’ interests.
- Our objectives are mainly the same as the objectives of the authorities or the legislators. The differences in the opinions are basically refers to the ways leading to the final goal.
- Our members are interested in precise, open information. We have shared a part of this information with everyone to strengthen the market and the clients.
- We have been providing technical, market, economic and legal information to the members since the foundation. .
- We have been providing information about the member companies to any other participants of the market.
- We use the widest network of social, professional and public organisations, chambers of commerce to develop strategic partnership.
- We have been successful to keep distance from politics.
We have been striving to confirm that our objective is correct:
Business and protection of the environment are not conflicting.
The determining role of the environment protection is referring to the economy and the world’s fate is not in question to anybody anymore.
We would see our Association still being a catalyst in this process together with other organisation, which are thinking in similar way.
