What is the German Sustainability Award?

Since 2008, the prize has been awarded by the German Sustainability Award Foundation together with the German Federal Government. It is the largest prize of its kind in Europe with over 1,000 applicants*. "The award is based on the goals of the 2030 Agenda and thus on key transformation fields such as climate, biodiversity, resources, supply chain and society."
