New partners for the Bernese Prize for Environmental Research
CSL Behring AG and Energie Wasser Bern are supporting the Bernese Prize for Environmental Research and are ensuring this arrangement continues until 2016. The Bernese Prize for Environmental Research is awarded every two years to early career researchers at the University of Bern for outstanding work in the fields of ecology and environmental science which has made an important contribution to our understanding of environmental problems and their solutions.
"Companies from the pharmaceuticals industry in particular have a special responsibility towards the environment and in terms of how they use resources. CSL Behring has committed itself to using environmentally friendly processes wherever possible in the manufacture of its products. It also places special emphasis on energy-saving technologies and extensive recycling. The promotion of research in the fields of ecology and environmental science at the University of Bern is a big thing for me. It can lead to new discoveries and innovative solutions. The economy can profit accordingly, with both people and the environment feeling the benefit too." Uwe E. Jocham, President of CSL Behring AG
"The emphasis at Energie Wasser Bern is the further development of existing renewable energy sources and innovative technologies and the search for new ones. We also focus on a sustainable approach to resources. We support the Bernese Prize for Environmental Research because it promotes renewable energies and a sustainable approach to resources." Daniel Schafer, CEO of Energie Wasser Bern.
