Introduction of the sustainability game

In the capital of Europia, called Mapton city, there is a shopping mall called ‘EuroMall’.  EuroMall is a modern shopping mall, with over 50 shops, located in the very heart of the city centre of Mapton. It is a completely covered shopping centre with an enormous variety of shops, which makes it a real shop-heaven for millions of shop-addicts across the country of Europia, every year.

The management of the city centre (area) organizes on a yearly basis the ‘enterprise of the year’ award for its shops and their location managers. Every year there is a central theme for the award.

This year the theme for the award will be sustainability. Who will be the most sustainable enterprise or shop of the year and will bear this prestigious title for the whole year, including lots of free publicity.
