After numerous applications with great sustainable club initiatives, the winner was determined last week after a fan vote on the top 3 projects. With almost 10,000 biathlon fans participating in the vote, the Deutscher Alpenverein - Sektion Ulm prevailed in the end and can now look forward to the value voucher for a Viessmann climate solution.
Once again, we would like to thank all the clubs that are already implementing sustainable initiatives in their clubs and have submitted these projects. We would also like to thank all fans and the biathlon community who have participated in the voting and paid attention to the sustainable efforts.

ASV Martell (Martell, Italy) - "Hydroelectric power plant for green electricity"
At the beginning of this winter season, the ASV Martell was able to switch completely to green electricity thanks to a hydroelectric power plant. This delivers green electricity for the biathlon facility and moreover for the snow production and also the administration building and provides a good example for a sustainable and resource-saving initiative.
