‘Despite having only launched last autumn, with entries required by Christmas, the awards programme attracted 64 entries from 43 companies, which meant that the members of the judging panel had its work cut out!’ said Mika Paljakka, Metsä Tissue's senior vice president for Metsä Tissue Ltd, UK & Ireland. ‘We are delighted that the cleaning and hygiene industry is going to such great lengths to embrace sustainability in its practices and have been incredibly impressed by the projects and initiatives that this competition has brought to our attention.

‘If we are able to share these projects and initiatives with our industry colleagues – and, dare I suggest it, the competition, it will help ensure that we ‘do our bit’ to look after the planet whilst raising our industry’s perception in the eyes of the general public.

‘Our aim in launching these awards has been to highlight and reward sustainability practices throughout our industry and thus create a positive, lasting impact on the environment. The interest shown in this, our first competition, means we are well on the way to achieving this aim.’
