The prestigious Environmental Professional of the Year 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.
2017 winner Dr Phillippa Pearson describes the awards as "a wonderful personal recognition" and "extremely important to me and my team".
The Environmental Professional of the Year award can be won by either a Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) or Registered Environmental Technician (REnvTech) from any sector or discipline. We welcome you to nominate your colleagues, peers, inspirations or even yourself!
All nominees will be reviewed by the Society's Honorary Fellows Panel; the committee responsible for awarding the title Honorary Fellow of the Society for the Environment (HonFSE) to those who demonstrate an exceptional contribution to protect and enhance our environment.
