At KNAUER, we are committed to pursuing new opportunities and operating sustainably. It is great that we have been able to network with the outstanding companies also honoured today," Mr Losch said at the ceremony.

The Award winners, selected for their high level of innovation, healthy growth and as being exemplary for the sustainable transformation of the economy, were chosen by an independent jury of experts headed by Matthias Platzeck, former Minister President of the state of Brandenburg.
