TLMI Opens Submission Process for Calvin Frost Sustainability Awards

TLMI announces that the Calvin Frost Sustainability Awards are now open for member submissions. In 2020, the Sustainability Leadership Awards Committee redesigned the submission process to acknowledge and recognize all levels of sustainability efforts, regardless of where companies are on their sustainability journeys. Each award level is open to any association supplier or converter member.
There are three different pathways to submitting an application for the Sustainability Awards: 

  • The Trailhead Award: This award is earned by a member company that is early on in their sustainability journey. They may not have fully implemented their sustainability efforts, but they have distinctive goals and have begun formulating a strategy.

  • The Journey Award: This award is earned by a member company that not only has publicly stated goals but has also begun implementing short-term actions aimed at long-term metrics to improve their business through sustainability efforts.

  • The Elevation Award: This award is 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 as a result of 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 to the association’s Media List. 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.
TLMI VP of Sustainability, Rosalyn Bandy, comments, “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. Not only are winning companies featured in a formal press release sent to TLMI’s Media List; the best-written submission additionally gets TLMI’s professional team sent to their facility to film a feature video that they can use for their own marketing and communications purposes. Winning a Calvin Frost Sustainability Award is fantastic publicity for companies.”
