Details of the first category in BMA’s Sustainability Awards is being revealed.
The awards, announced at the start of July, comprise five categories, each designed to recognise the hard work of BMA members who are reducing their impact on the environment.
The first category – THE CARBON REDUCTION AWARD – is open to bathroom manufacturers who are changing how they do things to reduce their carbon footprint.
Entries can include examples of energy efficiency, adoption of renewables, sustainable sourcing, greening of logistics etc.
A panel of three specialist experts will judge each category. For the carbon reduction award, they are: Chair of the Lords Select Committee on the Environment & Climate Change, Baroness Kate Parminter; Dr Sharon George, Environmental Sustainability course director at Keele University; and Brian Berry, Chief Executive at Federation of Master Builders.
Baroness Parminter said: “We are looking for the best innovations in carbon reduction in bathroom manufacturing.
“This is a chance to celebrate ingenuity and originality in tackling this challenge. The actions we are taking now, will have a positive impact on the environment in years to come.
“Driving down our carbon footprint is not just essential in the face of the climate crisis, it will create sustainable business opportunities.”
BMA has created the awards this year to celebrate achievement and acknowledge the importance of the sustainability as a priority topic in our industry.
Entrants can showcase their project, team and/or company, helping to raise the bar of achievement across the sector.
