APEAL2

The Environment Award

APEAL, the Association of European Producers of Steel for Packaging, is a federation of the four major producers of steel for packaging (ArcelorMittal, Tata Steel, thyssenkrupp Rasselstein, U.S. Steel Košice). Founded in 1986, APEAL represents today about 95% of the total European production of steel for packaging.

APEAL is committed to generating understanding and support for steel as a sustainable and resource efficient packaging solution.

The inherent properties of steel for packaging make it a model material for meeting the requirements of a circular economy.

Steel is the most recycled packaging material in Europe, with a recycling rate of 77,5% in 2015 (latest available figures.)

Magnetic properties make steel easy and economical to separate from other waste during recycling processes. As a permanent material, steel can be recycled infinitely with no loss of quality. Finally, because steel scrap is an inherent part of the production process for new steel, every single steel plant in Europe is also a recycling plant, saving resources, energy and emissions by recycling steel in a simple and efficient process.

Steel is a unique packaging material, combining exceptional performance capabilities with unrivalled environmental credentials. Strong, formable and long-lasting, steel offers numerous benefits for the safe packaging of a wide variety of products including food, beverages, aerosols, personal care, household, automotive and industrial goods.

CECE - Committee for European Construction Equipment

The Internal Market & Consumer Protection Award

CECE represents the interests of construction equipment manufacturers based or active in Europe. Counting around 1,200 companies, the sector employs about 300,000 people directly and indirectly. Their annual sales amount to roughly 40 billion €.

Industry and market are the essential elements that create the economic environment in which construction equipment manufacturers operate. Free movement of people, goods, services and capital are the key words for promoting and developing a fruitful and competitive market.

Construction equipment manufacturers are successfully using the benefits of the internal market. This lead the sector to be highly integrated, reaching in 2016 an overall 26 billion € value for intra and extra-EU trade. For this reason, CECE has chosen to sponsor the category “Internal Market” which represents the fundamental values that assure the highest productivity, driven by the best professionals operating in the sector, to match the labour market needs and maximise the results.

 Diageo

Diageo is the world’s leading premium drinks company, with an outstanding collection of brands across spirits and beer categories. Our business is built on foundations laid by the giants of our industry. Arthur Guinness, John Walker and those that followed in their footsteps, cared deeply about the people and businesses they fostered. They were driven to create products that would last for generations.

Today, we continue producing these brands with the same spirit: Johnnie Walker, the number one Scotch Whisky in the world; Smirnoff, the number one premium vodka;  Baileys Irish Cream, the number one liqueur; Guinness, the number one stout, just to name a few.

Diageo’s iconic brands are sold in more than 180 countries and enjoyed by millions every day, and it has long been our priority to ensure that they are enjoyed responsibly. We help our consumers make informed decisions about whether, when and how to drink and we have worked for decades with the industry and other partners to help tackle irresponsible and under-age drinking. We support hundreds of initiatives to raise awareness of the risks of alcohol misuse, provide information to consumers, educate and train hospitality workers, and much more.

We support the local communities where we operate by reducing our environmental footprint, especially in water-stressed areas. We promote women entrepreneurs and through our Learning for Life programme we train thousands of young unemployed to bring them back in the marketplace.

Our purpose is to help people celebrate life responsibly, every day, everywhere. We take great pride in what we do, and in how we do it.

CEOC IFIA

IFIA – The International Federation of Inspection Agencies and CEOC International - Confederation of Inspection and Certification Organisations are the two sister organisations speaking on behalf of the independent Conformity Assessment Bodies who provide testing, inspection and certification (TIC) services globally. The members of CEOC and IFIA employ over 350,000 employees and have a combined turnover of roughly €25 Billion. 

Consumer Product Safety and the fight against counterfeiting are ranking high on the agendas of CEOC International and IFIA, for this reason, the two associations have been conducting market studies over the past 5 years (2012 – 2016) showing the difference between the level of compliance of self-declared products, versus those that are certified by an independent third-party body. 

CEOC International and IFIA believe that independent third-party testing has a key role in helping small, medium and large enterprises navigate constantly changing global regulatory requirements and certifying they meet those standards in a more cost-effective way. This, in turn will ensure a level playing field for all economic operators regardless of their size.
