The German Institute for Service Quality (DISQ), news channel ntv and DUP Unternehmer-Magazin (German entrepreneurial platform for digitization and sustainability) have awarded the German Sustainability Award 2021 (Deutschen Award für Nachhaltigkeit) for the first time, choosing our Auping Evolve mattress as the winner.
Projects from a wide range of industries were honoured. The megatrend of sustainability presents companies with entirely new challenges – and the transformation has long since begun. The award winners show that they operate successfully and sustainably. Auping is one of the winners in the “Household/Living” category and was conferred the title “Product of the Year 2021” for its fully circular Auping Evolve mattress.
“We are committed to making the world liveable, healthy and safe for future generations. That is why we aim to offer a fully circular product range by 2030 at the latest. With the Auping Evolve mattress we are taking a big step in that direction. We are very happy to win this sustainability award. The award confirms our commitment to further encourage the sustainable use of raw materials and to be a role model for other companies." - Jörg Cieslak, Country Manager Auping Germany
With the award, the initiators aim to make visible and recognize innovative, sustainable, and future-oriented projects that set an example for environmental and climate protection. The patroness of this year's ceremony is Brigitte Zypries, former federal minister.
A total of 202 companies and their projects in 24 categories were nominated and assessed on various sustainability aspects. The top jury, made up of business, science and media, chaired by Yvonne Zwick of B.A.U.M. e.V (Federal German Working Group for Environmentally-Conscious Management), ultimately awarded 49 companies and organizations for their sustainability projects.
