Macael Awards 2022 to be the first sustainable awards

Macael Awards 2022 to be the first sustainable awards
The gala, which takes place on Friday 11 November, includes the commitment of the marble sector to make it a carbon neutral event.

The most awaited night for the natural stone sector in Andalusia is back; the best opportunity to showcase the work of an industry that never stops reinventing itself and conquering markets. This year’s Macael Awards gala, now in its thirty-fifth year, will be the first with a sustainable label. The event, which will be held next Friday, 11th November, brings with it the commitment of the marble sector to become the first carbon neutral awards. In line with this objective, a new category has been introduced: the Sustainability Award, which replaces the National Award.

Thus, the number of categories will continue to be ten, maintaining all the international categories, not only to recognise the efforts made by companies in terms of internationalisation, but also because this has been the main hallmark of the gala itself over the last decade. Therefore, the different categories are as follows: North America International Award, Latin America International Award, Europe International Award, Africa International Award, Asia International Award, Sustainability Award, Person/Institution Award, Design Award, Communication/Communicator Award and ‘Blanco Macael’ Marble Work Award. The International Awards, the Design Award and the Sustainability Award can be awarded indifferently to a Work, Architect, Developer, City Council or Public Administration.

The deadline for the presentation of candidatures for marble companies has been opened by the Andalusian Marble Business Association – AEMA, and will close on the 19th of September. The companies must provide, as usual, the corresponding documentation that accredits the justification of the proposal and merits, images of the same, informative material, and technical documentation, among others.

We recall that the 2021 awards went to the Junta de Andalucía, with the Institution Award; the #Estonotienequeparar and #Eactivate initiatives, with the Communication Award; Hotel Lopesan Costa Meloneras, with the National Award; Villa Sado in Portugal, with the Design Award, and the University of Málaga, with the Award for the Work in White Macael Marble; Kindree Chescoe and KLC Kreativ in Langley, Canada, Legislative Assembly of Costa Rica, Vision Pavilion (Expo 2020 Dubai, United Arab Emirates), Steyn City – City Center Residential Apartments, Johannesburg, South Africa, and Loenen Pavilion in the Netherlands, which won the International Awards for North America, Latin America, Asia, Africa and Europe, respectively.

Once again, AEMA, organiser of the event, will be announcing in the coming months, the details of this year’s gala, through communications, social networks and websites, as well as the identity of its sponsors, a constant and vital support for the achievement of the event.
