The Camden Group are nominated for three sustainability awards in Ireland’s high-profile plant and civil engineer awards.
Camden has been shortlisted in the Environmental Initiative, Wastes Management & Environmental Excellence and Circular Economy categories of the Construction, Quarry & Recycling Awards 2019.
Organised by Plant & Civil Engineer magazine, the awards celebrate excellence, outstanding contributions and unrivalled levels of service and innovation across Ireland’s plant, construction, quarrying, agricultural and civil engineering sectors.
Camden is the largest manufacturer of uPVC windows and doors in Ireland and the UK, with full onsite recycling, extrusion, design, production and logistics facilities.
Heavy investment in sustainability initiatives has enabled the company to recycle almost 50,000 tonnes of waste uPVC over the past 5 years and develop the greenest product range on the market.
Roy Harrison, Camden Group Sales Manager, said: “We’re absolutely delighted with these award nominations for our environmental excellence.
“At Camden we’ve taken a pro-active approach to leading a drive for increased sustainability across our sector.
“We’re particularly pleased with the Circular Economy award nomination, which recognises development of a high quality, high value end market product from recycled/recovered materials.
“Our product features 80% recycled content, which compared with an industry average of 15-30%, is truly market-leading.
“Sustainability is one of the most important challenges within our industry right now. It’s great to be recognised as a benchmark for other forward-thinking companies, both within the uPVC market and the wider construction and civil engineering sector.”
These award nominations come off the back of Camden successfully being shortlisted in two other sets of awards. The company are nominated for two categories in the forthcoming Glass and Glazing Awards, and were nominated in five categories of the recent National
Fenestration Awards, in which the company won the Sliding Patio Door Company of the Year award.
Over 500 guests are expected to attend the Construction, Quarry & Recycling Awards 2019, taking place at the Crowne Plaza in Belfast on 21st November.
Camden Group, established in 1983 and based in Antrim, is the market leader in manufacturing and supply of PVC windows and doors throughout the UK.
