What do solar-powered hearing aids, a subscription service for baby clothes and mobile technology for farmers in East Africa all have in common?

Solutions that claimed a spot on the list in 2015 were selected from a pool of more than 1,500 projects and businesses from across six continents and 151 countries.
Those recognized also demonstrate an important and exciting new development: that sustainability alternatives are increasingly becoming the more affordable and convenient choice.
