Anne-Marie Benoy, Manager of the All-Party Parliamentary Sustainable Resource Group and the Sustainable Resource Forum, has been part of the judging at the National Recycling Awards this year. Anne-Marie was asked to sit on not one, but two judging panels across different categories. She took part in the marking / evaluating of 20 top quality applications and presentations alongside other the sustainability experts. The NRA’s recognise and highlight the excellence and innovation present throughout the recycling and resource management sector today. These are the awards companies aspire to win, judged by their peers from across the industry. The National Recycling Awards reward excellence across the industry and address recycling, reuse and waste reduction. To win, entrants must demonstrate effective strategy, tangible improvement, innovative and creative solutions, and a strong business case. It’s as much about the bottom line as the environment. The two categories in which Anne-Marie was part of the judging panel are:
- Best Energy From Waste Initiative category
- Efficiency Initiative of the Year
Anne-Marie joined Policy Connect in June 2014 and was lead author of the APSRG inquiry ‘Triple Win: The Social, Economic and Environmental Case for Remanufacturing’, which was co-written with the All-Party Parliamentary Manufacturing Group and published in December 2014. Alongside organising regular APSRG events and activities, Anne-Marie most recently coordinated the production of the APSRG essay collection ‘Link to Link: Driving Resource Efficiency across Supply Chains’ which was published in February 2016. Anne-Marieholds an MA in Environment, Politics and Globalisation and a BSc in Geography, both from King’s College London. Her wealth of experience includes working in environmental and international development Departments and NGOs in Luxembourg. We wish all of the finalists the best of luck tonight!
