Vossloh is a finalist for the prestigious German Sustainability Award 2023
Vossloh is one of the companies from the mobility and logistics sector that can hope to be awarded the coveted prize. The award honors companies that have made a special contribution within their industry to spreading the transformation to more sustainability.
In cooperation with the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce (DIHK), the German Federal Ministry for the Environment and other partners, the DNP now honors companies from a total of 100 industries for the first time. The pioneers had previously been selected by independent expert juries on the basis of detailed sustainability profiles. The total of 140 jurors also decide on the three finalists and ultimately the winner in each sector.
It is expected that on October 31, 2023, the initiators of the award will announce which of the finalists has won in the respective category. Finally, the award ceremony will take place on the evening of November 23, 2023 in Düsseldorf as part of the congress for the 16th DNP.
