Outstanding Finalists Announced for the 2020 SocEnv Awards

The annual SocEnv Awards has once again attracted an extremely high calibre of entries.

The record number of nominations have resulted in 12 finalists for the Environmental Professional of the Year award and 5 finalists for the Registrant Newcomer of the Year award.

Following the 14th May deadline for nominations, the Society for the Environment is delighted to announce the highly deserving finalists of the prestigious 2020 SocEnv Awards. With two awards available for the first time, a record number of nominations were received, including many of an exceptional standard.

The Environmental Professional of the Year award is designed to highlight the very best work of Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) and Registered Environmental Technician (REnvTech) registrants. Registrants work across a wide spectrum of sectors and disciplines, making the nominations a melting pot of environmental expertise.

New for 2020, the Registrant Newcomer of the Year also showcases outstanding environmental work but is specifically available to those who have achieved their registration since 1st January 2019; shining a light on those who have really hit the ground running since becoming a REnvTech or CEnv.

Nominations for the 2020 awards have been received for environmental professionals working in science, research, consultancy, training, ecology, infrastructure, water supply, civil engineering, surveying, environmental management and more. There is also an international element, with nominees based in the UK, Denmark, Australia, the USA and Qatar.
