The four judges - Land Securities’ Neil Pennell, Chair of the IEMA Board Diana Montgomery, Editor of ‘the environmentalist’ Paul Suff and Will Parsons, Managing Editor Edie.net and Sustainable Business magazine - have chosen three finalists from this year's record number of entries. The winner will now be named on Thursday where the Graduate Award is being hosted by the Edie Sustainability Leaders Awards in London.

This year's shortlist includes:

Lee Collier - An Environmental Science graduate from the University of Greenwich who works as Energy & Environment Advisor at Linklaters LLP.

Coco Smits - A Graduate Environmental Scientist/Consultant for Royal Haskoning DHV with an MSc in Environmental Sciences from Wageningen University

During Thursday's ceremony, the winner will be presented with a £1000 cheque and a Sustainability Leaders Awards trophy by Neil Pennell and IEMA’s CEO Tim Balcon. They will also benefit from one year’s free IEMA Graduate membership, as will the two runners up.

The winner and runners-up will be revealed at here at IEMA News and on Twitter @iemanet on Thursday evening, with further details in the December issue of ‘the environmentalist’
