Green Tiger (Rohe Tiiger in Estonian) is a cross-sectoral collaboration platform which is creating a basis for a green economy, just as the Tiger Leap project jump-started the development of Estonia’s technology sector.
Green Tiger combines the societal demand for a sustainable Estonia and accelerates the system innovation that is needed to achieve that. Green Tiger’s vision: A sustainable world which preserves social welfare while focusing on the conservation and restoration of nature.
What is the mission of the project?
Green Tiger’s mission is to devise and implement environmentally friendly practices in all sectors, and to foster a green economy.
Where and when did the project start?
The project was initiated in 2019 and launched in 2020 in Tallinn, Estonia.
Where is the project offered today?
At the moment the Green Tiger collaboration platform is based in Estonia, enabling and gathering sustainable practices taking place in Estonia.
To whom is this project aimed? Who belongs to your target group?
The Green Tiger aims to take green development to the next level in Estonian society via collaboration across sectors at four levels: public sector, private sector, civic sector and individuals. This is done through:
Representing companies on environmental issues and making suggestions to policy-makers. We’ve created the Green Tiger economics panel, made up of Estonian entrepreneurs whose aim is to arrive at a vision of an economy that is environmentally friendly and based on future technologies, and whose implementation is feasible for Estonia.
Applying change in practice. In order to achieve this, we’ve created the Green Tiger pilot programme for organisations that are motivated to make the green leap.
Raising environmental awareness and responsibility. The organisations involved in the pilot programme undertake a 10-day Green Tiger Academy in which they learn about lowering environmental impacts, applying circular economy principles and gain skills for change management.
We will offer opportunities for individuals to champion sustainability. The aim is to steer people toward making more environmentally-conscious decisions.
