Shortlists for edie's awards announced
We are pleased to reveal the host of cutting edge projects shortlisted for honours in the edie Awards for Environmental Excellence.
The awards were established last year because we felt the good work being done by environmental consultancies as part of the wider efforts to reduce our global impact was going largely unrecognised.
As with last year, the shortlists throw up some interesting results, with the projects of global giants and household names often pitted against those of smaller outfits who are also doing cutting edge work.
According to Government, the environmental industries employ over 400,000 individuals in the UK and the consultants play an important role across a wide range of sectors.
In an effort to celebrate that broad variety of work being done, we ask companies to put forward the projects they are particularly proud of in five key areas.
The resulting shortlists are as follows - with projects listed in alphabetical order. To view the entries themselves in full, please click on the name of the category you are interested in which links to a page detailing the shortlists.

The project awards will be judged by Environment Agency chairman Chris Smith, chief executive of the Waste Resources Action Plan (WRAP) Liz Goodwin, director of the Building Research Executive (BRE) Peter Bonfield, Peter Stansby of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research and Tom Stephenson, head of applied sciences at Cranfield University.
Sponsors include National Laboratory Services, Siemens, Landmark Information Services and Allen & York Recruitment.
The awards will be presented at a gala dinner at London's Natural History Museum on November 13.
