The competition (originally called FINAT Recycling & Sustainability Award) was introduced in 2014 to recognize efforts of the industry in paper and film release liner recycling. In 2021 the competition was renamed into FINAT Sustainability Awards and will concentrate on sustainable practice in the broadest sense. All entries are judged by an independent panel of industry representatives.
