Metsä Tissue’s UK Sustainability Awards – entry deadline THIS WEEK

Metsä Tissue, in partnership with the Cleaning & Services Support Association, has announced its first Sustainability Awards, with the goal to promote sustainable practices across the industry. The awards are open for entries in several categories until 23 December 2022.

We all recognise the growing importance of sustainability in every business sector and the cleaning and hygiene industry is no exception. It is with this in mind that Metsä Tissue, in partnership with the Cleaning & Services Support Association, has launched a Sustainability Awards competition. If you would like to showcase your proactive actions for more sustainable business, you have until close of play on 23 December to submit your entry - and to create fair and equal participation for all, the awards are free to enter.

“With the glaring focus on sustainability, it is incumbent on all of us not just to do our bit, but also to recognise those who are leading the way in best practice and going above and beyond to promote and embrace sustainability," said Mika Paljakka, Metsä Tissue’s senior vice president for Metsä Tissue Ltd, UK and Ireland. "Our aim is to highlight and reward sustainability practices throughout our industry and thus create a positive, lasting impact on the environment.”

Planned to coincide with an event which will draw those in the industry to London – The Cleaning Show at London’s ExCeL, 14-16 March 2023 - the black-tie awards ceremony will take place on Wednesday 15 March at 19:00hrs in Greenwich, at the iconic Cutty Sark.

This awards programme is open to all organisations involved in the cleaning and hygiene industry: companies large and small, membership and accreditation organisations and end users, whether commercial or public sector. So, if you, your organisation, your team or your invention are making a difference - directly or indirectly - to people and the planet, you are eligible! You can nominate yourself, your suppliers or your customers (or a team of any combination if that is relevant). The awards categories are:

 Carbon Reducer Award

 Social Value Impact Award

 Renewable Energy Performer Award

 Best Sustainability Marketing and Communication Initiative Award

 Team Sustainability Excellence Award

 Individual Sustainability Excellence Award

Initial entries will be reviewed by a team of specialists with focus on quantifiable, proven sustainability benefits. The top entries in each category will then be passed to a highly qualified and experienced judging panel who will review and score each entry, determining the winners.
