German Sustainability Conference: Landpack wins Next Economy Award 2016

Munich, 28th Novem­ber 2016 – The Munich-based pack­a­ging and engi­nee­ring com­pa­ny, Land­pack, has been awar­ded with the Next Eco­no­my Award (NEA) during the 9th Sus­taina­bi­li­ty Con­fe­rence in Düs­sel­dorf for win­ning in the “Natu­re” sec­tion. This natio­nal top-award for inno­va­ti­ve and sus­tainab­le busi­ness con­cepts is awar­ded via the Ger­man Sus­taina­bi­li­ty Award in col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with the Federal Minis­try for Eco­no­mic Affairs and Ener­gy, the Coun­cil for Sus­tainab­le Deve­lo­p­ment and the DIHK. The award con­tains non-cash bene­fits worth 25.000€.

This year, 150 com­pa­nies have app­lied to win the most renow­ned Start-Up award in the sus­taina­bi­li­ty sec­tor, which is divi­ded into 4 dif­fe­rent categories.

“This is an ama­zing award for us and shows that the incre­a­sing pack­a­ging was­te has an immense rele­van­cy and urgen­cy. Con­su­mers sim­ply don’t tole­ra­te plastic and Sty­ro­foam was­te rub­bish piles any­mo­re, espe­cial­ly at home.” The­se are words from the exe­cu­ti­ve direc­tor and foun­der of Land­pack, Dr. Tho­mas Maier-Eschenlohr.

Land­pack brings the solu­ti­on in the form of repla­cing plastic pack­a­ging with re-gro­wing mate­ri­als like straw or hemp and deve­lo­ping com­ple­te­ly new mate­ri­als for the pack­a­ging sec­tor. Insu­la­ting pack­a­ging by Land­pack is com­ple­te­ly com­post­a­ble and the­re­fo­re a novel­ty around the world. This not only con­vin­ces cus­to­mers, but also the expert jury of the Next Eco­no­my Award..
