The 2014 winners of the CIWM Awards have been unveiled, representing the pinnacle of best practice and innovation in the waste and resources industry.
Over 400 attendees gathered at the ceremony held at the London Marriot, which was hosted this year by TV presenter and adventurer, Helen Skelton, who’s widely known for presenting BBC’s Blue Peter and Countryfile.
The CIWM Awards recognise the achievements and innovations made by companies, local authorities, professionals and academics, and cover all aspects of the industry – from waste and resource management, to sustainability and energy recovery.
The CIWM Awards are split into two parts: The Professional Awards, which are awarded for professional development and achievements; and the Sustainable and Resource Industry Awards, which are awarded for public sector and commercial excellence.
Judged by the most senior experts in the sector, the Awards represent the highest level of achievement.
The 53 shortlisted companies for 2014 showcased the innovative approach to waste and resource management that is being undertaken by private organisations and local authorities.
