TLMI has opened submissions for the Calvin Frost Sustainability Awards designed to acknowledge and recognize all levels of sustainability efforts, regardless of where companies are on their sustainability journeys.
In 2020, the Sustainability Leadership Awards Committee redesigned the submission process to recognize all levels of sustainability efforts. Each award level is open to any association supplier or converter member.
There are three different pathways for submissions:
- The Trailhead Award: earned by a member company that is early on in its sustainability journey. It may not have fully implemented its sustainability efforts, but it has specific goals and has begun formulating a strategy.
- The Journey Award: earned by a member company that has publicly stated goals and has also begun implementing short-term actions aimed at long-term metrics to improve its business through sustainability efforts.
- The Elevation Award: earned by a member company that is leading the industry with fully formed, publicly stated sustainability goals, strategies, and executions that are improving multiple aspects of sustainability. Award recipients will demonstrate significant, measurable, environmental benefits due to internal projects, products, or programs that go beyond regulatory requirements.
The due date for submissions is August 29, 2022, and once announced, a formal press release will be issued featuring award winners. In addition, the company that submits what the judging panel considers to be the best-written proposal out of all the applications received will have the opportunity to create a professional on-site video with TLMI’s video engineers that will highlight the winning company’s sustainability efforts as highlighted in their submission.
‘Last year we had a record number of submissions for the Calvin Frost Sustainability Awards, and we are gearing up for even more this year,’ commented TLMI VP of sustainability, Rosalyn Bandy. ‘Not only are winning companies will be featured in a formal press release sent to TLMI’s media list; the best-written submission additionally gets TLMI’s professional team sent to its facility to film a feature video that it can use for its own marketing and communications purposes. Winning a Calvin Frost Sustainability Award is fantastic publicity for companies.’
