The British Woodworking Federation has announced that entries have now opened for this year’s Awards including a new category, the BWF Sustainability Award.

Chief Executive Helen Hewitt said: “We’re excited to introduce the BWF Sustainability Award to honour those leading the charge with sustainable practices.

“Our profession is in a unique position with timber being the only truly renewable building material, and through the Timber in Construction Roadmap we can play a key role in the Government’s net zero ambitions by safely increasing the use of timber and reducing embodied carbon in the built environment. 

“To support this low carbon vision, it’s also important to champion the woodworking and joinery businesses taking a proactive approach to sustainability. The new BWF award will recognise the significant achievements of woodworking and joinery businesses that have reduced their carbon emissions or implemented new and better processes to improve their energy efficiency.

“We’re looking forward to coming together in November to celebrate the very best of the UK’s woodworking and joinery sector.”

Entries for this year’s BWF Awards close on 30th August. Those shortlisted will be invited to attend the BWF Awards Dinner on Friday 22nd November at The Langham, London.
