The Catalonia Eco-Design Award forms part of the Catalan Eco-Design Strategy (Ecodiscat) 2012-2015, promoted by the Ministry of Territory and Sustainability of the Government of Catalonia and coordinated by the Directorate General for Environmental Quality. Its goal is to encourage the incorporation of eco-design in the production process, to foster a cross-cutting approach and knowledge transfer, and to boost the consumption of sustainable products and services in Catalonia.


The award has five categories: Categories A, B, C and D are for entrants from Catalonia, while Categori E, Euro-Mediterranean Design, is aimed at entrants from the 21 neighbouring Mediterranean countries members to the Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment and the Coastal Region of the Mediterranean (Barcelona Convention)
