Germany’s greenest gala
The prize ceremony of the German Sustainability Award held at Düsseldorf’s Maritim Hotel on 25 November was attended by some 1,200 invited guests, among them corporate, government and political figures as well as representatives of the research sector and civil society. Needless to say, the entire event was planned and organised with sustainability in mind down to the last detail. The gala was hosted by the initiator of the Award, TV science journalist Stefan Schulze-Hausmann, with the prizes presented by such prominent figures as Malu Dreyer, President of the German Bundesrat, Federal Environment Minister Dr. Barbara Hendricks, and other high profile figures. Dr. Gerd Müller, Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development, was the patron of this year’s event.
