Nomination German Sustainability Award
We are happy to announce that our bean glasses have been nominated for the German Sustainability Award Design. The jury will decide on the finalists and winners in mid-September. The winners will be announced during the award ceremony on December 2, 2020 at the MARITIM Hotel Düsseldorf.
The German Sustainability Award is the national award for excellence in sustainability in business, communities and research. With eight competitions, over 1,000 applications and 2,000 guests to the events, the award is the largest of its kind in Europe. The award is presented by the Stiftung Deutscher Nachhaltigkeitspreis e.V. (German Sustainability Award Foundation) in
cooperation with the German federal government, leading municipal associations, business associations, civil society organizations and research institutions. The setting for the award ceremony is the German Sustainability Day in Düsseldorf, the most visited annual communication platform on sustainable development issues. The award honors pioneering contributions to the transformation toward a sustainable future in all relevant sectors. The award is based on the goals of the 2030 Agenda and thus on the key transformation fields such as climate, biodiversity, resources, society and supply chain. The DNP aims to motivate all key stakeholders to change, to network them across borders and to inspire partnerships. The DNP aims to draw attention to creative ideas against "business as usual" and to set targets for how transformation can be achieved more quickly.
Design plays an increasingly important role; all the major environmental and social challenges of our time are reflected here. Against this background, the DNP 2021 announces the award for sustainable design for the second time: The DNP Design awards design, technical and social solutions that are particularly effective in terms of the transformation to sustainable products, production and consumption systems or lifestyles. Honoring the best is intended to help ensure that design in general is even more strongly oriented toward sustainability. In the German Sustainability Award Design, the concept of design is not limited to the design of physical products. Design is the development of any conceivable product, system or service. In the best case, the central question at the beginning of the development process is how a product, service or system can achieve the greatest possible positive effect for sustainability. The design and implementation of the design solution are oriented accordingly.
