DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR 2016 said it will continue promoting environmental sustainability by once again organising the ‘Green Step Asia’ Awards in cooperation with Floor Covering Weekly.

As per a press release from the organiser, in 2015, the Green Step Asia Awards Program witnessed an increased number of participants and entries compared to the previous year.

Nine green initiatives were officially awarded during an onsite ceremony held at DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR 2015 in the presence of some of the world’s most influential professionals.

John Wu, CEO of Novalis and one of the winners of 2015 Green Step Asia Awards had said, “It is a great honour to be recognized for our sustainability efforts in the presence of colleagues from the flooring industry.

“The Green Step Asia program will help drive the green cause forward, not only in Asian flooring industry, but also in the rest of the world,” Wu had added

“It is never too late for Asian flooring manufacturers to start setting internal goals for sustainability efforts and while we can’t make the whole world green, but we can all help to make it greener,” he had stated.

According to the organisers, Green Step Asia Awards gives flooring exhibitors a chance to showcase their sustainable development at all levels.

The goal of this environmental awards program is to support and promote those efforts and to give Asian suppliers the credit and recognition they deserve.

“In other words, it is a way to honour those companies and individuals that embody the principles of environmental stewardship so important in today’s global flooring industry,” the organiser observed.

The competition is open to any manufacturer in the world who has manufacturing facilities in Asia where they apply the principles of environmental sustainability.

In 2016, it will feature three awards categories for the flooring industry, namely, best green product, best green practice/process, and best green pinnacle and submissions can be made until January 31, 2016.

Mohd Zulhemlee An, president of the Malaysia Architects Association will be joining the authoritative jury composed by the leaders of some of the world’s most famous flooring associations and industry media.

“I think Asian companies have become more aware regarding the importance of sustainable construction and protecting the environment,” Zulhemlee too stated.

“Joining the judging panel will enable me to share and exchange views with the other judges regarding the protection of the environment, and how the construction industry can become more sustainable,” he also added.

Votes for the entries come independently from each judge to Floor Covering Weekly and DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR organisers.

The winners and honorable mentions for each category will be announced during an award ceremony that will take place on the first day at DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR. (AR)
