ebm-papst nominated for the German Sustainability Award 2012

Fan specialist ebm-papst is among the three companies nominated for the German Sustainability Award 2012.

In the category "Germany's Most Sustainable Future Strategy (Corporate)", the technology company convinced the expert jury through its outstanding commitment in the energy efficiency and climate protection areas, which it has demonstrated for years.

The distinction is an initiative of the Deutscher Nachhaltigkeitspreis (German Sustainability Award) e.V. foundation, in co-operation with the German federal government, the Rat für Nachhaltige Entwicklung (Council for Long-Term Development), trade associations, municipal associations, civic development organisations and research establishments.

Rainer Hundsdörfer, Chairman of the Board of Managing Directors, says, "The topic of sustainability has had a central importance at ebm-papst for many years. Our "GreenTech" corporate guideline is an excellent example of this. We are very pleased that with this prestigious nomination, the jury has rewarded our dedicated efforts."

ebm-papst was selected from among 680 participants, among them multinational and publicly traded companies and traditional and family-owned companies from different industries. As part of a festive awards ceremony, the winner of the Sustainability Award will be revealed on December 7, 2012.
