The competition continues!

With the exception of a few exhibition stations that have been cancelled, the Federal Ecodesign Award will take place as planned. Especially in the difficult situation currently caused by the Corona pandemic, it is important for all of us not to withdraw completely and, as far as possible, to maintain a bit of normality.

The registration deadline for this year's competition expired on 6 April. Now the formal examination of all submissions will begin, followed by the evaluation by the panel of experts. Experts from the German Environment Agency and the Advisory Council will examine the submitted projects and decide on admission to the jury meeting.

Together with all participants and partners of the German Federal Ecodesign Award, we look forward to contributing to the strengthening of the topic - and especially to congratulating the winners in a few months' time and presenting their successful products, services and concepts to the public.

Stay healthy and optimistic!
