Application and selection process
The new application process makes it even easier for you to verify your Eco Performance:
Step 1: Registration
Register to take part in the competition. After your specifications have been checked, you will receive an e-mail containing access data for your personal login area.
Step 2: Short application
Log in with your access data. Your personal login area provides you with an overview of your status, activities, entry fields for your application, and case studies to help with orientation.
Initially just a short application is needed consisting of five questions. In this way the jury can quickly gain an impression about the potential of your sustainability concept. Simply answer the five questions online. You can interrupt your entries at any time, save your texts and edit these again later.
Deadline extension: The submission deadline for the short application is 18.02.2018.
Applications sent in will be checked and assessed by the jury. The candidates with the most winning potential will be nominated for taking part in the full application.
Step 3: Full application
If you are one of the nominated participants, you will be enabled online for the full application and informed of this via e-mail.
Log in with your access data. You can now fill in the full application online. The full application consists of a questionnaire and short report, and images can also be uploaded. You can interrupt your entry at any time, save your texts and information and edit this again later.
Full applications sent in will be checked and assessed by the jury. Three to five applicants will be invited to personally present their concept to the jury.
The award ceremony
The winners will be awarded the Eco Performance Award 2018 at a celebratory prize award ceremony.
