Metsä Tissue in the UK, in partnership with the Cleaning & Services Support Association, is announcing the first of it’s kind Sustainability Awards competition to the hygiene industry in early 2023, with the goal to promote sustainable practices across the industry. The Awards are open for entries in several categories until 23rd December 2022.

We all recognise the growing importance of sustainability in every business sector and the cleaning & 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 to the hygiene industry. If you would like to showcase your proactive actions for more sustainable business, you have until close of play on 23rd 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. Our aim is to highlight and reward sustainability practices throughout our industry and thus create a positive, lasting impact on the environment”, says Mika Paljakka, Metsä Tissue’s Senior Vice president for Metsä Tissue Ltd, UK & Ireland .

Carefully planned to coincide with an event which will draw those in the industry to London – The Cleaning Show at London’s ExCeL, 14th – 16th March 2023, the black-tie Awards Ceremony will take place on Wednesday 15th at 19:00hrs just a short distance away, in Greenwich, at the iconic Cutty Sark.

This Awards programme is open to all organisations involved in the cleaning & 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
