Nominations for the 2021 Sustainability Award are now open. The deadline for submission of the one page initial submission is January 31, 2021. Full submissions will be accepted until 5:00 PM on Friday, March 19, 2021.

The Engineers and Geoscientists BC Sustainability Award recognizes the important contribution that engineering and geoscience professionals lead in greenhouse gas emission reductions, developing climate adaptation options and seeking to achieve both in realizing sustainable outcomes. It further seeks to recognize the positive role of human qualities such as ethics, imagination, reason and common sense in achieving this end.

Sponsored by the Sustainability Advisory Group, the award will be granted to a project that has demonstrated a commitment to action on climate change and has exemplified one or more of Engineers and Geoscientists BC’s Sustainability Guidelines. The Sustainability Award is designed to increase registrant awareness of and promote the current knowledge of sustainability, which includes, as a primary goal, proactive management of issues such as adaptation to climate change, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, and exceeding current/future regulations in achieving sustainable outcomes. One Award of Excellence may be granted annually.
