It was a great honor for our company to receive the ZEIT WISSEN Award for exemplary commitment to sustainability at the Sustainability Congress in Hamburg in March 2016. Reinhard Schneider, CEO of Werner & Mertz and founder of the Frosch Initiative, accepted the award in the category "Action".
A company earns its customers' trust when it consistently considers sustainability in business decisions. That's the trust which the Frosch brand and the SME Werner & Mertz have persistently worked towards over the past 30 years as a European sustainability pioneer.
The ZEIT WISSEN Award "Encouraging Sustainability", which has been presented in the categories "Knowledge" and "Action" since 2013, recognizes pioneers who make a substantial contribution to sustainable development. This year a jury made up of nine renowned experts from business, non-profit organizations and academia chose the winners from three nominees in each category.
