In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

The contest is a unique window for companies and organizations who have started to develop products that are sustainable. Moreover, it is a unique opportunity to inspire and understand the way companies can/must keep in mind these new parameters in their business model in the 21st century.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

Eco-design is in the midst of becoming an undeniable approach for companies who want to remain leaders in their markets. Our contest covers a trend that is quickly becoming influential. Furthermore, as of 2012, an agreement with France means a European version of the Novae contest in Eco-design.

What was the triggering factor of this project? Edit

In the last six years, Novae is the professional media in sustainable development in Quebec. After setting up several tools and platforms (web, print and event) to help managers and decision makers understand the issues and parameters in sustainable development, eco-design had the following logic: After evaluating modes in operations, the company responsible must pass to the eco-design phase of its products. Launched in 2011, the contest was created to stimulate this new business practice.
