The shortlist for this year’s coveted Plantworx Awards has been revealed


Plantworx 2023 has announced the shortlist for its 2023 Innovation Awards programme.  In this year’s entries, across all of the categories, the focus was very much on environmental solutions, sustainability, safety and smart technology, with many of the entries fitting into more than one of the categories, as more companies have adopted a multidisciplinary approach when designing their products/systems.


The judging panel, which was made up of a handpicked panel of independent experts consisting of some of the most highly regarded individuals in their respective fields, deliberated for some considerable time over this year’s nominations, but eventually came up with an outstanding shortlist of companies. The shortlists for these awards are put together with great consideration, research and knowledge.

The Judges

The Plantworx team would like to take this opportunity to say a huge congratulations to all finalists and a big thank you to everyone who took the time to enter. 

The panel of judges has now come to a decision and we are delighted to share with you 2023’s highly-anticipated shortlist.
