The municipalities of Breklum, Bordelum and Klixbüll in Schleswig-Holstein received a sustainability award from the Secretary of State for the Environment, Anke Erdmann, for their Common Good Balance Sheets.

With the price the Department of the Environment wants to advance lasting projects in the country and create more awareness on the topic. The anchoring of the SDGs in the Common Good Balance Sheet corresponds to the objectives of the state.

Erdmann: "Schleswig-Holstein is a land of lateral thinkers. In other words, people who, like the state government, feel committed to the UN sustainability goals, who look beyond the beaten track, make their sustainable innovations visible and thus encourage imitation."

Among the partners of the Schleswig-Holstein Sustainability Award are the Schleswig-Holstein Chamber of Industry and Commerce, the two education centres for sustainable development - the Christian Jensen College in Breklum and the Haus am Schüberg in Ammersbek - as well as the Investitionsbank Schleswig-Holstein (IB.SH), which contributed a young talent award.
