We are very pleased that the German Sustainability Award has nominated the SHAVENT for the 2021 award in the design category!
Especially as a start-up, participating in prizes is often a difficult undertaking (participation fees, submissions, etc.) - that's why we are particularly pleased that the selection committee of the German Sustainability Prize us for these nomination selected.
A great honor for us and especially for Armin, who developed the SHAVENT. We would like to thank you very much for this wonderful recognition and we are very excited about the course of the competition.
Would you like to know more about the German Sustainability Award? Then here are a few facts straight from the board itself:
14th German Sustainability Award
The German Sustainability Award is the national award for excellence in sustainability in business, municipalities and research. With eight competitions, over 1,000 applications and 2,000 guests at the events, the prize is the largest of its kind in Europe.
The award is given by the German Sustainability Award Foundation in cooperation with the federal government, municipal umbrella organizations, business associations, civil society organizations and research institutions. The framework for the award is the German Sustainability Day in Düsseldorf, the most popular annual communication platform on the topics of sustainable development.
It honors pioneering contributions to the transformation into a sustainable future in all relevant sectors. The price is based on the goals of the 2030 Agenda and thus on the key areas of transformation such as climate, biodiversity, resources, society and the supply chain. The DNP wants to motivate all important actors to change, network them across borders and stimulate partnerships. The DNP is supposed to attract attention to creative ideas against the "business as usual!" And show how transformation can succeed faster.
Design is playing an increasingly important role; all of the major ecological and social challenges of our time are reflected here. Against this background, the DNP will announce the award for sustainable design for the second time in 2021: The DNP Design awards creative, technical and social solutions that are particularly effective in terms of the transformation to sustainable products, production and consumption systems and lifestyles. The recognition of the best is intended to help ensure that design in general is even more geared towards sustainability.
At the German Sustainability Award Design, the concept of design is not limited to the design of physical products. Design is the development of every 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 on sustainability. The design and implementation of the design solution are accordingly based on this.
In addition to the "regular" German Sustainability Award Design for current solutions (without any additions), the award with the addition "Visions" is also awarded for solutions that are not yet on the market.
