Sustainability category added to Dental Industry Awards

Sustainability category added to Dental Industry Awards

Introducing the Sustainable Business Award category at the Dental Industry Awards, recognising sustainability champions in dentistry.

With the highly anticipated Dental Industry Awards set to return for its 10th anniversary in 2024, FMC is delighted to announce the launch of a new Sustainable Business Award. With patients and practices more dedicated to reducing their environmental impact than ever, recognising companies who are making dentistry a greener industry is paramount.

Though the existing Corporate Social Responsibility category is a fantastic opportunity for companies to demonstrate how they give back to the community, FMC believes that the issue of environmental impact in the dental industry deserves a distinct award.

What makes a sustainable company?

If your company has taken steps to evaluate its environmental footprint, FMC would love to receive your entry. Why is sustainability important to you? What are your sustainability goals and how have you worked to achieve them? How have you engaged your staff and customers on the issue of sustainability? These are the questions that a successful entry will answer. 

Some specific areas of focus that our judges are interested in include:

  • Reduction of single-use materials
  • Carbon emissions and energy use
  • Encouragement of biodiversity.

They also want to hear how these sustainable practices have been integrated into your business. This includes everything from the changes you have made to your premises to how you’re empowering your team and delegating eco-conscious tasks.

How to enter

If you think you could be in with a chance of winning the Sustainable Business Award, it’s important to submit your entry by the deadline (18 September 2024). Put together up to 500 words on why you should win, plus any supporting evidence. Full judging criteria can be found in the entry guide at

Once you have compiled your entry, head over to and click on ‘Register Now’. Add your details and select your categories. You can then fill out the online form to submit your entry.

Entry costs £50 plus VAT per category and entries must be received by Friday 18 September to be counted.
