An award scheme can be very effective in stimulating better practice and innovation, in encouraging people and organisations to perform better, and in bringing those involved in the provision of high-quality products and services to the attention of a wider public. This guide is for use by construction clients and main contractors as a framework to help them develop and run an award scheme based on sustainability criteria for their own suppliers, contractors and designers. The guide will also be of interest to those competing for an award. Key words: water quality, pollution prevention, environmental good practice, waste minimisation, sustainable construction, health and safety, sustainable resource use, supply chain management, benchmarking and KPIs.
