Wanted: Forerunners of Ecodesign

 

You are a company, start-up, design agency or a student group working on sustainable products? Then you should know about the German Federal Ecodesign Prize!

The prize is awarded every year by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment (BMUB) and the Federal Environment Agency (UBA) to products, concepts and services which are both ecological and user-friendly. The focus of the prize on the entire life cycle of a product – from the idea to production, to the question of how the product can be recycled or disposed of.

The award winners and nominees will be honored at the award ceremony in the Federal Ministry of the Environment on 27 November 2017 and presented in a traveling exhibition at exhibitions and museums in the following year.
