The Hungarian Association of Environmental Enterprises (HAEE) is the largest Hungarian environmental advocacy organization, whose members are key players in the Hungarian green industry covering the whole range of environmental activities. The HAEE works to promote members’ demands at national and international levels.
The Association, with its 265 members has been coordinating and educating the actors of the Hungarian environmental protection and nature conservation scene and the environmental industry for more than 30 years being an outstanding partner of policymakers and almost all actors of the economic life.
Members of the Associations are environmental service-providing companies, R&D institutes, manufacturers & distributors, universities and green NGOs.

The aim is to improve environmental processes and activities both at the national and international level, with special regard to the Carpathian Basin, The Danube River Catchment Area.
We have dedicated thematic Working Groups for most of the environmental issues that we cover. Most Working Groups meet several times a year to develop strategies for lobby work and to facilitate information exchange, discussions, and monitoring of policy developments. Our working groups are Battery and Energy Storage, Environmental Communication and Information Technology (awareness-raising and education), Net Zero, Prevention of Littering, Measuring – Sampling, Remediation and Damage Control, Waste Prevention and Waste Management, Water Management and Water Conservation, Plastic Waste Management and Recycling.
