Green Product Award

The international Green Product Award offers a platform for established companies, start-ups and students who are distinguished by their products and services in terms of design, innovation and sustainability and who want to present themselves on the German market.

Since 2013, participants from 40 countries have applied for the award. The awards are given in 13 categories separately for companies and start-ups. In addition, the Green Concept Award is dedicated to the concepts that lead to a green future.

The winner in the Mobility category in 2019 was SOL Motors’ electrical design rocket, which stood out due to the innovative synergy of lightweight design, performance and connectivity.

Schüco International’s Cradle-to-Cradle window series won in the Architecture category. Its unique system components are setting new standards for the industry: turn/tilt window doors with zero-level threshold for secure ease of access in the patio area, minimal operating forces for maximum user comfort and energy self-sufficient sensor which monitors the opening status of windows.

With Classen Green Vinyl, the Classen Group demonstrates that it is possible to produce an emissions-free flooring, whose look, feel and elasticity is in no way different to that of a conventional vinyl floor covering made of PVC.

13RUGS combines woollen selvedges from ROHI’s fabric production to make unique carpets with intricate craftsmanship. A multi-phase felting process transforms premium production surplus materials into textile art works for floors and walls. From the source material to the final product, 13RUGS carpets are produced exclusively in Germany.
