German Environmental Prize
Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt
Since 1993 the “Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU)” awards outstanding achievements and the commitment for environmental protection, as well as the German small and medium-sized companies for its innovative and creative environmental technologies or scientists for promoting sustainable ideas and solutions to politics and society with the German Environmental Prize every year. The DBU does not just want to use the German Environmental Prize to award people, but wants especially to motivate: individuals and cooperation. Today in most cases, only interdisciplinary approaches offer answers to the big challenges: climate and environmental protection, recourse conservation, increase in efficiency and sustainable development.
