Derived from the GOOD DESIGN® Award, the ecology-driven Green GOOD DESIGN Award is now being granted for the second time. This recognition is designed to emphasise the importance of sustainable design and to raise consumer awareness of companies that adhere to the principles of sustainable design in their operations. The jury, consisting of members of The European Centres International Advisory Committee, selected more than 100 representatives of sustainable design from thousands of submissions, covering 46 nationalities. Awards were granted in several categories. Founded in Chicago in 1950 by architects Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames, and Edgar Kaufmann, Jr., the GOOD DESIGN® Award is the oldest design award in the world.
