»We won the Ecodesign Award at a time when we were still building up and investing in our company. It was greatly motivating. An award like this is a huge feather in our cap, not least because it’s from an institution that we know is taking a deeper look at the overall process and not just handing out prizes to anybody. They have to be genuinely excited about the product. This award means that you have passed the litmus test.«
