The BMA is celebrating the bathroom industry’s progress on environmental issues with the launch of its new Sustainability Awards.

The BMA says the launch of the awards – which will recognise the efforts being made by its members to reduce their impact on the environment – acknowledges the importance of sustainability as a priority topic within the industry.

BMA chief executive Tom Reynolds said: “This is about giving a well-deserved boost and celebrating all those who are changing things for the better, transforming the bathroom sector’s environmental credentials.

“It’s the first time we have organised an awards like this and we’re really excited to establish it and grow it in future years as the bathroom industry breaks new ground in terms of sustainability.”

The full list of categories is:

Carbon Reduction Award

Water Efficiency Award

Circular Economy Award

Workplace Initiative Award

Sustainability Champion

The awards are open to full BMA members and affiliates. The deadline is 5pm on August 27, 2021.

Entrants are invited to complete a 400-word submission explaining their sustainability improvement, along with a short supporting video, which can be self-shot footage.

Entries will be judged by a panel of industry experts, which includes kbbreview managing director Andrew Davies, who will be looking for quality, impactful and inspirational examples of sustainability in action.

“I’m absolutely delighted to play a part in highlighting the importance of a topic like sustainability. What better way to do that than by recognising the efforts and commitment of our own industry to drive change,” said Davies.
