To enhance the global visibility of Chemical Leasing, in 2009 UNIDO developed the Global Chemical Leasing Award, which acknowledges best practices and aims to inspire companies and individuals around the globe to follow the innovative Chemical Leasing pathway.
The first award ceremony took place in 2010 and recorded 27 applicants from different countries, while the second one took place in 2012 and saw an increase in participation with 37 applicants. Both times, the ceremony was organized within renowned international chemical exhibitions.
In its third edition, the Global Chemical Leasing Award 2014 will award companies and individuals in four categories: case studies (for companies), consulting services, scientific publications, and public relations.
This year’s award is sponsored and supported by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO); the Austrian Federal Ministry for Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management (BMLFUW); the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB); the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO); and the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN).
The Award ceremony will take place 11-13 November 2014 in Basel, Switzerland, during the international Conference and Exhibition on Sustainable Chemistry and Engineering “Ecochem”, which is expected to be attended by some 3000 delegates and 120 exhibitors.
The call is open until 15 August 2014. Please send your application to Petra Schwager, UNIDO Industrial Development Officer and coordinator of the Chemical Leasing Programme.
We look forward to your application!
