12th December 2014 - 09:30am

Miele has scooped a National German Sustainability Award for its sustainability strategy and product longevity.

The Gütersloh-based appliance manufacturer, which won in the 'large companies' category, was recognised for the transparency in its Sustainability Report.

In addition, a jury – which included the German Council for Sustainable Development secretary general Dr Günther Bachmann – said the durability of its domestic appliances, together with energy efficiency and low consumption, 'sets an exceptionally good example for sustainability in its branch of industry and in society in general'.

It added that the company's assessment of its upstream suppliers' sustainability stood for 'high social standards well above the average' among employees.

A ceremony, held on 28 November in Düsseldorf, also awarded former German president Horst Köhler, actor Colin Firth and his wife Livia for their social and environmental commitment, and the singer Nelly Furtado for her humanitarian work.
