Sustainable Award 2023
The Sustainable Agile Award, presented by Plan A ApS (Plan A hereinafter), aims to celebrate and accelerate the valuable and beneficial contributions and advances made around sustainable and agile projects and product development. In doing so, Plan A supports the vital, necessary shift toward substantive, dynamic sustainability capable of adapting and responding to the moment during this volatile period in our shared history. When over 30% of western economies are related to projects as reported by IPMA, then the uplifting and leveraging of innovation and agility as embedded components of sustainable projects and product development can significantly influence and direct enormous financial investments to benefit our climate, population, and shared future.
Join us in our inaugural presentation of the Sustainable Award, to take time to appreciate, celebrate, and accelerate vital projects and products, partnerships, organizations, and individuals leading the way in transforming wholly and holistically the design and processes of projects and products in ways that prioritise and leverage sustainability and adaptability for the benefit of people, planet, partnerships, and peace.
