Volvo Environment Prize Foundation
Award to a USA, Canada, or International individual scientist or group of scientists to recognize outstanding research contributions to the field of environmental sustainability. Nominations are accepted for scientists specializing in a broad range of disciplines relating to the environment and sustainability. The nominee's research should be based on scientific grounds but must clearly show impacts outside of the specific discipline, such as impacts on policy development, sustainability, or contribution to changed behavior.
Since the first award in 1990 the Volvo Environment Prize has become one of the scientific world’s most respected environmental prizes. The Prize is awarded to individuals throughout the world for outstanding innovations or scientific discoveries, which in broad terms fall within the environmental and sustainability field. While there are many outstanding biologists and environmental scientists among the laureates, the span of disciplines and activities for which nominations can be made is wide and includes all disciplines which have relevance to the environment. So previous laureates also include economists, urban development experts, energy specialists, poverty adversaries and many others who are exploring the path to sustainability.
Nominations must include a detailed description of the research the nominee has conducted and how it adds to knowledge around environmental science. Main scientific achievements and their importance should be emphasized.
