BMA Sustainability Awards winners revealed

The BMA Sustainability Awards acknowledge the outstanding efforts made by BMA members in reducing their environmental impact.

Consisting of three categories, with the open category sponsored by elemental and Installer, the winners were announced during a gala dinner, as part of the annual BMA Industry Conference.

GROHE

The judges in this category had a great deal to deliberate. Jane Thornback of the Construction Products Association, Andy Davies of Taylist Media and Lauren Wiseman of the World Wide Fund for Nature UK agreed that GROHE’s range of environmental initiatives and a good understanding of sustainability had the winning edge.

InstallerSHOW’s Dave Ventris-Field presented the award to Lisa Carnwell, BMA Communications Manager, on behalf of GROHE.

Winner of the Carbon Reduction Award – sponsored by KBB Focus

Triton Showers

The judges for this category, Emma Hedges of KBB Focus, Keele University’s Dr Sharon George, and CAFA Collective’s Alison Heppentsall, agreed that Triton Showers had submitted an excellent entry. Their targets, quantitative reporting and incentivisation for consumers to change behaviours regarding water use and carbon emissions gave them the winning edge.

Darren Summerfield of KBB Focus presented the award to the Triton team.

Winner of the Water Efficient Innovation Award – sponsored by UWLA

Cistermiser (for their Direct Flush Discreet)

The judges in this category were Waterwise’s Nicci Russell, Tom Andrewartha from Northumbrian Water, and the Unified Water Label Association’s Yvonne Orgill, who all noted it was a powerful case study showing demonstrably high water savings. A good video and well-written application secured their winning spot.
