Sustainable Design Focus

Design plays a crucial role on the way to a sustainable society. Up to 80% of a product’s environmental impact is decided in its design. The German Design Awards have set themselves the goal of promoting sustainable transformation from the perspective of design, because outstanding examples provide orientation for others.

Responsibility

The German Design Council has committed itself to an ecologically sustainable way of working. On the one hand, this means that it makes the internal work processes more environmentally friendly and energy-saving. The German Design Council also works with sustainability initiatives such as the “New European Bauhaus”, and training providers who offer training for the staff of the German Design Council and its member companies. As it would like to become even more involved in the future, the German Design Council has also made various adjustments for more sustainability at the German Design Awards.
