Society for the Environment to present the award for Environmental Professional of the Year at the ENDS Environmental Impact Awards.
For the past three years the Society for the Environment has recognised the outstanding achievements of individuals through the Chartered Environmentalist of the Year award. This year, the Society is delighted to announce that the annual award has been expanded to include Registered Environmental Technicians, and therefore renamed as the Environmental Professional of the Year Award.
The Society has partnered with ENDS to present the Environmental Professional of the Year award at the inaugural ENDS Environmental Impact Awards.
The award celebrates an individual’s exceptional commitment or major achievement where their professional practice has made a real difference to protecting, preserving or enhancing the environment and advancing the principles of sustainability.
Past winners have included David Stubbs (CIEEM, 2013), Professor Martin Bigg (IEMA, 2014) and Dr Lucinda Gilfoyle (IWater, 2015). Please follow the links to find out more about each winner.
The award is judged against the nominees application of their knowledge, their role in leading or supporting sustainable management of the environment, effective communication of sustainability issues and their personal commitment to professional standards. Particular weight will be given to specific examples of key involvement in a significant project that has been instrumental in its success, an innovative approach to problems and challenges and significant personal responsibility for documented successes.
The winner will be decided by the Society's Honorary Fellows Panel.
Nominations are now closed
The Society wishes all of the nominees the very best of luck. We look forward to announcing the winner of the Environmental Professional of the Year on the 4th May 2017.
