Every year, the German Ecodesign Award looks for durable and recyclable products, processes and systems that make an important contribution to the sustainable transformation of our economy and society. Learn more about the competition process in our short film:


»We won the German Ecodesign Award at a time when we were still building up and investing in our company. It was greatly motivating. An award like this is a huge feather in our cap, not least because it’s from an institution that we know is taking a deeper look at the overall process and not just handing out prizes to anybody. They have to be genuinely excited about the product. This award means that you have passed the litmus test.«
