This Week's Highlights

Industry Awards

In 2018, NEIA introduced a renewed industry awards program, celebrating the businesses, researchers, and professionals building the green economy in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Awards Categories

Cleantech Innovation Award

This award, open to business and academia, recognizes clean technology innovation in Newfoundland and Labrador. Innovations can be recognized at any stage of development – from research and development, to commercialization, to refinement – of products, services, or processes that can mitigate effects to, protect, or enhance the environment. The award is judged according to the uniqueness of the innovation, the potential for positive environmental impact, and the potential for commercial application.

Environmental Industry Business Excellence Award

This award recognizes a significant initiative or achievement of a business engaged in Newfoundland and Labrador’s green economy. Initiatives or achievements could include the completion of specific business projects that have a positive environmental impact, business growth milestones (e.g. new sales, workforce expansion), or a contribution to the community from a sustainability or corporate social responsibility perspective. The award s judged according to the initiative or achievement’s impact as it relates to economic growth and development, positive environmental effects, and public awareness of green economy and environmental challenges or opportunities.

Environmental Industry Champion Award

This award recognizes the contribution of an individual (e.g. an environmental practitioner, business owner, decision-maker, etc.) to the growth of Newfoundland and Labrador’s environmental industry. Contributions can be considered from a practitioner, economic development, or regulatory perspective. Champions can be recognized for singular contributions or the culmination of their activities over a period of time. The award is judged according to the contribution (over and above commercial success), its associated positive environmental effects, and its lasting impact on the industry.
