The 2014 Award is jointly sponsored and supported by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the Austrian Federal Ministry for Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management (BMLFUW), the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), and the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN).

Chemical Leasing is a ‘smart’ business model, promoted by UNIDO since 2004 with the direct support of the Governments of Austria, Germany and Switzerland. The model is intended to shift the focus from increasing the sales volume of chemicals towards a value-added approach, leading to a more efficient use of chemicals, thereby providing environmental and economic benefits and catalyzing innovation.
