Phil Cumming FIEMA and Nigel Carter MIEMA CEnv were presented with their awards at the 2017 BSI Standards Forum & Awards event, held in London on 23 November 2017.
The BSI Standards Awards recognise outstanding contributions by emerging standards-makers, innovators, industry leaders, consumer champions and international standards-makers.
The BSI Innovation Award was presented to Phil Cumming for his groundbreaking work in the development of the first standard for the circular economy. Phil was instrumental in ensuring content was applicable to real-world scenarios by user-testing principles, tweeting, blogging, speaking at industry events and encouraging others to do the same.
Nigel Carter received his award for outstanding leadership in the development of greenhouse gas management standards, an area he has been leading since 2002. Nigel is a leader, problem-solver, mentor, expert, voice of reason and an ambassador for standards. He is well respected by fellow standards-makers and his leadership will be missed after he retires later this year.
