Green Product Award

THE AWARD FOR SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTS

The Future is Now

For more than 10 years, the international Green Product Award has been honouring impressive products under the criteria of design, impact and sustainability. Once a year, companies and start-ups have the chance to get feedback on their products and services, and for finalists and winners, the award also offers numerous advantages to distinguish themselves from their competitors in the market.

With a reach of more than 7 million people, the Award is a fixed point on the sustainability map.

For active networking, learnings & showcases, the Green Future Club offers its members the ideal platform and numerous benefits. This is also where you can meet the players who are applying for the Green Concept Award with concepts that are not yet on the market.

Subject-specific reviews

Design
This is about the design as an overall approach with the following criteria: aesthetics, user-friendly functionality, economic and ecological constructions, possibly the interaction of product and packaging. The quality of communication with the consumer about sustainability is also considered.

Innovation
To assess the innovation, it is examined whether a problem / need (better) is solved, the scale of what is new and how relevant it is. When submitting concepts, there is an additional focus on the respective business model.
