The award for sustainability and excellence

The annual Lean & Green Management Award is an opportunity for all companies to be evaluated in terms of sustainability and lean management in a benchmark and to learn from the best. The award is aimed at companies with at least 150 employees and has been held over a decade since 2012. A jury of representatives from science, business and media decides on the winners. Participation in the award is free of charge.

Benefits for participants

  • Independent positioning (benchmark)
  • New ideas and suggestions through detailed expert feedback
  • Higher motivation of your own workforce to promote Lean & Green
  • Marketing of own products, services and organisation
  • Lean & Green Summit: Networking with other companies and exclusive insights into winning companies

Scientific support

The Lean & Green Management Award is scientifically supported by the "Technical University of Munich" and the "Technichal University of Würzburg-Schweinfurt".

The support of the universities makes it possible to continuously develop the award and ensure high quality in the evaluations. Anonymous companion studies will make findings from the award available to a broader audience in the future. Through this, it is possible that rapidly changing challenges and the latest developments in the areas of lean management and sustainability are also constantly reflected in the questions of the award.
