Encirc has been recognised as the Sustainable Manufacturing category winner at The Manufacturer MX Awards (TMMX Awards).

Held in Liverpool, and delivered by The Manufacturer in partnership with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), TMMX Awards are peer-reviewed and widely regarded as the gold standard in manufacturing awards.

The win comes on the same evening (November 17) that Encirc was also crowned winner of the Innovative solution prize at the Glass Focus awards.

The award further certifies the pioneering sustainability initiatives Encirc has put in place as the company continues to push the boundaries of sustainable manufacturing processes, with the aim of reducing its environmental impact and future-proof the business.

Initiatives such as Encirc’s unique 360 service have massively increased the sustainability of entire supply chains, using bulk shipping and streamlined distribution processes to reduce carbon emissions.

Pioneering service

Alongside this pioneering service, Encirc has partnered with like-minded experts and suppliers to explore opportunities with biofuels and hydrogen to further amplify glass’ sustainability credentials.

The glass container manufacturer and filler has also worked within its local communities, working with schools and businesses to increase recycling levels, raise awareness around biodiversity, and showcase the importance of sustainability for the future.

Fiacre O’Donnell, Encirc’s Director of Sustainability, said: “Winning the Sustainable Manufacturing award at the MX Awards is an absolute honour and testament to the continuous work we do as leaders in sustainability within the industry.

“Our holistic approach to sustainability means that all our stakeholders play a role in making it central to our business. We will continue to invest and innovate to create the most environmentally-friendly bottles possible.”

On the same night, Encirc was also awarded the Glass Focus Innovative solution prize. For further information about Encirc, see www.encirc360.com.
