Theme and nomination 2018

Collaboration in Connection to production

When talking about collaboration in connection to production it is often referred to as symbiosis. Symbiosis occurs in nature when two or more biological organisms exchange material, energy or information in a way that is mutually beneficial. Just as in nature, there are many good examples today of collaborations which have resulted in sustainable solutions that could not have been achieved individually by the parties involved. While collaboration often requires courage, innovation and inventiveness, it often helps to bring about environmental improvements, new jobs and business gains.

This is why, for the fisrt time, the jury for the Gothenburg Award for Sustainable Development is seeking nominations for the Award on the theme of symbiosis.

The jury is seeking:
“Sustainable production achieved through innovative collaboration resulting in resource or energy savings. We are seeking examples where there has been documented improvement in sustainability performance, for instance as a result of industrial symbiosis, blue economy or other forms of collaboration.”

The nomination link will be open until January 30.
