 “Catalonia Ecodesign Award 2017” at ESCI-UPF.

The itinerant exhibition, organised by the Government of Catalonia and the Waste Agency of Catalonia (ARC, in its Catalan acronym), showcases the 2017 winning candidates and those that received a special mention from the judging panel composed of international experts on design and sustainability; the selected candidatures are also present through photographs.

This exhibition is aimed “to bring ecodesign closer to product designers, manufacturers, strategy promoters and students, as well as to the general public, to promote the consumption of eco-designed products,” according to the ARC. It is accompanied by the Prize Catalog that includes more information about these initiatives that encourage product sustainability, efficient use of resources and optimization of end of life.


About the Catalonia Ecodesign Award

Since 2001 the Government of Catalonia has sponsored an award that recognises innovative, quality and environmentally-sustainable products to change production and consumption models. The Award recognises products, products under development and strategies designed, manufactured or executed in Catalonia which incorporate in their design aspects aimed at improving their environmental performance over the course of their life cycle. In addition, it aims to “encourage the inclusion of ecodesign to drive the manufacture and consumption of sustainable products and services in Catalonia,” according to organisers.

For the 2017 edition, the award had 4 categories: products already in the market which have been designed or manufactured in Catalonia and which take into account environmental considerations; projects of products, not yet manufactured or marketed (but at the prototype stage), designed in Catalonia, which take into account environmental considerations; initiatives, policies, procedures or systems, implemented or executed in Catalonia, which incorporate the use or fostering of ecodesigned products; and products in the market, products under development or strategy, with ecodesign criteria, developed by students or newly qualified professionals in Catalonia.

The Prize is celebrated every two years. The next edition will take place in 2019.
