As recently announced by the German Sustainability Award (Deutscher Nachhaltigkeitspreis) Foundation, Baufritz has been nominated for the 2021 German Sustainability Award for Design. The accolade, presented for the first time this year, recognises excellent examples of sustainable design in diverse areas of everyday life. This new category highlights green alternatives and transformative solutions for a wide range of scenarios. Baufritz received the German Sustainability Award, Europe's premier accolade for positive contributions to environmental protection and society as a whole, in 2009. We are very pleased to be among this year's shortlisted candidates for this unique honour.
Baufritz has long been a beacon for eco-friendliness within the construction industry. For many years, we have worked hard to incorporate environmental protection and resource efficiency into our practices. We have adopted a cradle-to-cradle approach to sustainable building modelled on the way materials are created and recycled in the natural world – and embraced climate-friendly construction to create genuinely carbon-positive homes. In addition, our dedication to sustainability includes our community efforts and commitment to fairness to all stakeholders.
We are very pleased to receive this nomination, and would be very honoured if our transformative efforts for sustainable design – part and parcel of our company's DNA – were to be recognised by such a prestigious award.
