The mission of the Green Electronics Council (GEC) is to achieve a world in which only sustainable electronics are designed, manufactured and purchased. The GEC Catalyst Awards seek to inspire innovation in the design, manufacture and use of Information Technology (IT) to advance sustainability globally.
Each year the Catalyst Awards focus on a different theme. The 2018 Catalyst Awards theme is Advancing Human Wellness Through IT. Additional information about the 2018 Catalyst Awards is available on this page. Please note that the nomination period for the 2018 Catalyst Awards has now closed. Through GEC’s partnership with the Personal Connected Health Alliance, the 2018 Catalyst Awards ceremony will take place in mid-October as part of the Connected Health Conference.
GEC provides two Catalyst Awards. The first is “Catalyzing Impact at Scale,” which recognizes organizations that have achieved a large-scale sustainability impact due to their design, manufacture and/or use of IT. The second is “Catalyzing Disruptive Innovation,” which recognizes organizations that have designed cutting-edge technologies or used technology in such a way that, if adopted widely, could lead to exponential sustainability gains.
