Natural resources are getting progressively scarcer. Companies that are researching new technology and modernizing their production operations will this year be competing for a special “Resource-efficiency” prize under the aegis of the tenth German Sustainability Award.
This award is designed as an accolade for a company that has successfully established measures for resource-economy and raw-material/energy-efficiency in its production operations and its value added chain. Six companies have been nominated for the special prize, including Der Grüne Punkt. The award is intended to spotlight the special perceived importance of recycling issues and to give due recognition to the companies’ commitment. The awards ceremony will be held in Düsseldorf on 8 December 2017.
