Selection criteria  

Among the received applications, an independent expert pre-jury selects 12 nominated practices - 3 in each category - which are then evaluated by a jury. The 4 winning practices are disclosed during a ceremony in the final quarter of 2024. 

The criteria used for all the categories are: 

- the degree of implementation,
- the impact,  
- the innovative and replicable nature of the initiative,  
- the way the project is managed and its integration as part of a long-term approach.
