The judging process for the National Recycling Awards is underway and, as ever, it is an enriching experience. The waste and resource management sector grows year-on-year because of the ingenuity and enterprise of the managers, engineers, designers and workforce of the companies and organisations within it.
The shortlists we published last month provide plenty of evidence of that. This year, we introduced new categories to reflect shifts in society - for example, the health category follows increasing attention from the NHS on its waste and sustainability.
The response to these additional awards has been very exciting. Obviously, I’m sworn to secrecy while the winners are decided, but the final event at the London Hilton on Park Lane on 3 July is not to be missed.
I have been reflecting this week on how we communicate and share the best practice of the winners and those on the shortlists. I believe we can always do better on that score.
For example, EMAP boasts a number of titles covering the NHS, retail and construction sectors, and I intend to bring YOUR efforts to THEIR attention because there is so much best practice to highlight. That in turns offers readers further opportunities to boost their business.
Another message I will be striving to get across more loudly as we transform MRW next month is what you are missing from your subscription if you do not also visit the MRW.co.uk website regularly.
We are proud to get reports to you online as the news happens, and the additional space offers real opportunities for even greater detail, background and insight.
But have you taken the few simple steps needed to get access to it? And have you signed up for the daily and weekly newsletters we send out so you don’t miss anything?
If the answer is no, then you are missing out. Call 01604 828705.
