Nomination for Blue Angel Award
Since 2008, the German Sustainability Prize has been awarded to companies who promote ideas for a sustainable society in a special way. The award is an initiative of the Stiftung Deutscher Nachhaltigkeitspreis e.V. in collaboration with the Federal Government, the Council for Sustainable Development and various business associations as well as civil society organizations and research institutions and the award ranks among the most significant German prizes in the area of sustainability. The “Blue Angel Prize” has been awarded as a special prize since 2012 to the company, initiative or public establishment which supports the eco-label in outstanding ways and thus contributes in particular measures towards environmental protection.
The judging panel of the German sustainability prize merits our national and international dedication to the circularization of Blue Angel with a nomination for the ‘Blue Angel Prize’.
