The Household & Commercial Products Association (HCPA) recently announced the winners of the 2022 Innovation Awards, which honor companies within the household and commercial products industry for innovative accomplishments in five product categories: Carbon Footprint, Circular Economy, End-User Communication, Ingredients, and Technology. This year’s program specifically focused on innovations that help the industry transition to an environmentally and socially sustainable economy.
The Innovation Awards are held in conjunction with HCPA’s Annual Meeting in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. New this year, Annual Meeting attendees were able to vote for an innovation to win the Association Award during a poster session.
“The Innovation Awards provide member companies with the opportunity to showcase the progress they are making to meet consumer demand and advance the sustainability of the industry,” said Steve Caldeira, President & CEO. “Increasingly, consumers are calling for more sustainable products, and companies have invested significant time and resources providing them. These include innovative formulations, processes, and packaging that address human health and environmental challenges. This year’s innovations protect people and the planet, create overall efficiencies in the manufacturing, processing, sale, and use of products, and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. HCPA members are committed to developing a circular economy and educating and empowering consumers, and we are extremely proud to recognize and celebrate these companies.”
HCPA would like to congratulate the following companies for their accomplishments in developing the next generation of products and their leadership in moving the industry forward on sustainability.
