Sustainability Award - GE Awards 2021
Entrants for this category must be able to demonstrate an innovative, unusual, or cutting edge approach to environmental and sustainability issues on a geotechnical project, between January 2020 and June 2021.
This could be in the form of reuse of materials or existing structures/foundations, innovation in redeveloping brownfield sites or use of technology/design to reduce carbon emissions or any initiative that drives sustainability across the wider project.
We recognise that the Covid-19 pandemic might have had an adverse effect on some companies, initiatives and projects. We still strongly encourage companies and teams to enter this year’s GE Awards, as their pandemic response strategy will also be considered in the judging.
- Entries must demonstrate benefits to all three pillars of sustainability – environmental, social and economic
- Analysis should show a quantifiable sustainable benefit
- Demonstrate how the approach was applied/could be applied across the supply chain to ensure maximum benefits
- Potential for approach to be rolled out to other schemes/projects
Each entry should be supported by a maximum of two images and one diagram. Images should be in landscape, more than 1MB in size, in jpeg/png format and should not be edited to include details of the category or the name/logo of the company entering (or any other annotations). Additional text (other than diagram annotation) included in supporting documents will not be used by the judging panel. The images might be used in marketing material and featured in Ground Engineering.
