About The Awards

The CIWM Awards For Environmental Excellence have been running since 2007, during which time they have gathered huge momentum and firmly established themselves on the industry calendar as not only a prestigious award to win, but as an impressive and exciting event to attend. As a result of the event s popularity, in just three years it has outgrown even the Dorchester Hotel! We have therefore made the decision to move to the larger Grosvenor Square Marriott for 2010, using its magnificent Westminster ballroom. The venue offers all the luxury and opulence you would expect of a top London hotel with the convenience of a central location and we feel it meets our requirements perfectly, I m sure you will agree! As usual the judging panel will be drawn from organisations and individuals with specific knowledge in all the areas the awards seek to recognise and we are delighted that renowned journalist and news presenter, Kate Silverton, will be on hand to present the awards at the inaugural event at our new, five-star location.

New For 2010

The awards themselves were originally created to recognise excellence within the resources and wastes management industry, through product design and innovation, and in a range of other commercial sectors. While this still remains the case, we have taken the opportunity of a change of location to review all the awards categories to ensure that they still reflect our ever changing industry and capture the imagination of our applicants and sponsors alike.

Calling All SMEs

Two of the most popular categories, Innovative Practice and Recycling Performance, have been split into SME s and non-SME categories. The Vehicle and Plant & Equipment awards have been merged into one category, and the Construction & Demolition Site Waste Management and Product Use categories will also come together in one award: the Construction & Demolition Project of the Year. The Recycling Champion of the Year award will now stand under the name of Community Recycling Champion of the Year, specifically targeting those who demonstrate commitment because they believe in the cause for the good of their community. And finally the Communications Campaign of the Year award will recognise successful PR, awareness and behaviour change campaigns carried out in environmental areas.

Meet The 2009 Winners

With some new categories replacing a few of the previous awards, some of 2009 s winners will carry the distinction of never having to relinquish their title! This is true for two of the construction sector s biggest names: Skanska and Laing O Rourke Infrastructure, C&D Site Management and C&D Product Use winners respectively; and Geesink Norba and Penny Hydraulics, winners of the Vehicle and Plant & Equipment awards. The recipient of our final retail specific award was Budgens, or more specifically the Crouch End and Belsize Park Budgens stores, while Chiswick Park Enjoy-Work took the recycling performance crown thanks to some innovative solutions and an 80 percent recycling rate at the office park. ECOBOND won the sustainable product development award for its recycled ECOBOND tile; and Workplace Solutions was the facilities management winner for its work with Carillion and AXA. One of the most popular winners, however, was community-led environmental charity, Tipton Litter Watch (pictured with 2009 event host, Deborah Meaden) for its work in educating young people in the West Midlands about recycling.
