SocEnv Awards nominations

The SocEnv Awards now open for nominations, could you be recognised in 2024 for your outstanding environmental work? Or do you know a deserving colleague who has recently gone above and beyond to protect or enhance the environment? 

The Society for the Environment (SocEnv) is welcoming nominations for the 2024 edition of the prestigious SocEnv Awards. Designed to recognise those outstanding individuals who have innovated, inspired, and have gone beyond what’s expected in their recent work to protect, preserve, or enhance the environment, there are two prestigious awards available: 

  • 2024 Environmental Professional of the Year 
  • 2024 Rising Star Award 

It is your chance to inspire the next generation, to recognise the skills of your peers and to remind one another why we’re here, doing what we do and striving every day to make a difference to the environment.  

Last year’s Environmental Professional of the Year award winner, Claire Wansbury CEnv, AtkinsRéalis Fellow and Technical Director Biodiversity. Reflecting on this achievement a year on, Claire said: 

“It was such an honour to win Environmental Professional of the Year 2023.  I have been fortunate during my career, and particularly in my current role with AtkinsRéalis to work on some incredible initiatives and projects.  It is easy to take what we do day to day for granted, but we can all make a real difference. For anyone considering applying or proposing a colleague in future for one of the awards, I would absolutely encourage you to do so. It is a simple process and allows us to celebrate the efforts and achievements of our profession.” 

2022 Environmental Professional of the Year, Becky Toal CEnv, Managing Director Crowberry Consulting Ltd said: 

“As a winner in 2022 it’s a fantastic validation of the creative effort of an environmental and sustainability manager, recognising the valuable input to society and communities of your knowledge, skills, and competencies. As the owner of Crowberry Consulting Ltd – Enabling sustainable futures it has led to new business opportunities. For anyone who would like to nominate or self-nominate I encourage you to go for it, the form is easy to fill out and an impartial judging process is also in place.”
