The Water Efficiency Award
Sponsored by UWLA

BMA has been at the forefront of highlighting the energy/water nexus to policymakers. Making the built environment more water-efficient must be part of our national plans to decarbonise. With over 60% of domestic water, consumption is in the bathroom, our sector must play its part.  –

The judging criteria will be 1) quality of the entry 2) potential water efficiency achieved 3) innovativeness of the product  

Circular Economy Award

The judging criteria will be 1) quality of the entry 2) fidelity to circular economy principles 3) scale of impact
