Environment+Energy Leader 50

Thank you for your interest in the E+E Leader 50. We are currently restructuring this program for 2023 and beyond. Stay tuned here for more details to come.

Meet the 2022 E+E Leader Honorees:

We are thrilled to present the fifth annual E+E Leader 50, recognizing the outstanding achievements of top executives, nominated by peers and selected for their remarkable contributions to advancing sustainable solutions and driving their companies and their partners toward a better future. With so many deserving nominations received this year, it was challenging to narrow down the list to just 50 honorees. However, we are proud to introduce you to this group of exceptional individuals who are making a real difference in the world.

These honorees come from a diverse range of backgrounds and expertise, including CEOs, VPs, managers, and engineers. They are driving innovation in areas such as renewable energy, sustainable supply chain management, circular economy, and many more.

To learn more about each honoree and their remarkable accomplishments, we have included their LinkedIn profiles for your convenience. We invite you to congratulate them on their well-deserved recognition.

Throughout the year, we will be publishing individual Q&As with each honoree on the Environment+Energy Leader website. Make sure to subscribe to our e-newsletter to stay up-to-date and inspired by the remarkable work of these 50 professionals who are shaping the future of our planet.
