Presented annually, the Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) awards recognize companies that are driving environmental advances in product design, sustainable materials, and end-of-life recovery of plastics.

This year’s developments came into sharp focus with this week's unveiling of the 2022 Re|focus Sustainability Innovation Awards. This year’s judges included Kyla Fisher of Three Peaks Consulting, Ron Vance of the U.S. Environmental Protection Administration, and Lilli Sherman of Plastics Technology Magazine.

“We’re grateful to our panel of expert judges for lending us their time and talent,” says Tony Radoszewski, president and CEO of PLASTICS. “This is one of my favorite PLASTICS programs, because it gives companies an opportunity to prove that our industry is walking the walk when it comes to sustainability and protecting the environment.”

Adds Patrick Krieger, VP for sustainability at PLASTICS, “Innovation and sustainability have become inextricably linked in the plastics industry. We're seeing so many companies using plastics to improve the sustainability of so many other industries like food and the automotive industries.”

The five award winners are recognized in the slideshow gallery.
