Henning Larsen and the Department of Sustainability are among a total of ten companies nominated to the prize Entrepreneur of the Year 2012 in the category Cleantech. In this category the prize is awarded to companies developing services, processes or products that reduce the consumption of resources better than prevailing technologies.
The Department of Sustainability at Henning Larsen Architects develops visions and design tools in the field of sustainable design. The department is behind the publication of the book “Design with Knowledge”. The book presents a knowledge-based design method which makes it possible to work with sustainability as a design parameter.
The ten nominated companies will be presented to an independent jury. The jury will decide the top three and in the end the winner. This will be announced at a nationwide event the 22nd of November in Copenhagen.
