Coram UK shortlisted for BMA Sustainability Awards

Coram UK has been shortlisted as a finalist for the 2023 BMA Sustainability Awards.

Coram UK Holding Ltd encompasses five leading bathroom brands; Impey, Coram Showers, Geesa, Sealskin and Tiger. With a manufacturing hub based in Bridgnorth, the well-known showering solutions brand has a keen focus on sustainability and has worked hard over recent years to ensure that it is continuously monitoring and improving environmental objectives and targets.

Focus areas include business-wide recycling (with a target of over 50 tonnes), removal of plastic packaging and a full overhaul of packaging methods and products. Other initiatives include; replacement of staff vehicles with electric / hybrid, energy efficient lighting changes and assessment of IT protocols to save energy.

Coram UK has been shortlisted for the ‘Open Category Award’. The judges of the Award were looking for positive developments and initiatives on offer that showed a good understanding of sustainability.

The BMA’s Chief Executive, Tom Reynolds, said: “The journey our industry is on to minimise its impact on our beloved planet isn’t an easy path, but the various initiatives and products we’ve witnessed through the judging process signal the incredible advances we are making. Our sector should be proud of that.”

Steve Huntly, Managing Director at Coram UK said: “Over the last few years all significant environmental impacts of the company’s operations have been scrutinised and objectives with targets set and reviewed annually to promote the continual improvement of our environmental performance.

Optimising the material and packing of our largest volume product, the EasyFit wetroom former, helped us reduce landfill by 15 tonnes in 2022. As a business with a UK manufacturing base, we have a stringent and successful recycling mission and are on target to recycle in excess of 50 tonnes in 2023.”

The winners of the 2023 BMA Sustainability Awards will be announced on October 10, 2023.
