We are honoured to receive such an outstanding recognition of our performance: MEWA won the "Top 3" award in the category "Germany's Most Sustainable Products/Services".
The award that is conferred by the Stiftung Deutscher Nachhaltigkeitspreis e.V. (German Sustainability Award Foundation) in conjunction with the German Federal government honours outstanding achievements in the area of sustainability in Germany and it is one of the most prestigious awards of its type in Europe. It is conferred annually in five categories on companies that combine economic success with social responsibility and preservation of the environment. This year approximately 600 companies competed for the award.
We are among the finalists, in part due to our system of textile management for wipers. According to the jury's verdict, with its reusable solution, MEWA enables considerable savings in resources and waste and at the same time satisfies the product demands imposed on social and economic sustainability.
The award was conferred on representatives of all victorious enterprises and research institutes on 22 November in Düsseldorf on a large stage. Award winners were honoured by people who professionally and personally are committed to more sustainability in our world, including EU Environment Commissioner Janez Potočnik.
