  • Lucy Barrett (Stockport Homes)
  • Agnieszka Chuchla (Milliken & Company)
  • Hayley Jewitt (Laing O’Rourke)
  • Joseph Clark (SPP Pumps Ltd)

Also being awarded are two Runners-Up prizes of £500 each plus one year’s Graduate membership of IEMA.

The winner will receive their prize and trophy from IEMA’s CEO Jan Chmiel on stage at the Edie Sustainabilty Leaders Awards, held this evening at The Grange St Paul’s Hotel in London. Details of the winner and runners-up will be revealed tonight on iema.net and on Twitter, and also in the December issue of The Environmentalist.
