Environmental Leader 50 2017

Environmental Leader 50At Environmental Leader, we cover commercial and industrial environmental issues, typically focusing on what a “company” is doing concerning environmental, EHS and sustainability management.

And while our publication’s purpose is to keep commercial and industrial “environmental leaders” informed, we sometimes neglect to name the specific vice presidents, directors, managers and engineers driving their companies – and the EHS, environmental and sustainability management industry itself – forward.

With that in mind, it’s my honor to introduce the 2017 Environmental Leader 50, chosen through many months of curation, nominations and research carried out by Environmental Leader and advisers and industry insiders.

Many of these vice presidents and directors will be familiar to you, as they have been prominent in the industry for years. Others have worked diligently behind the scenes; still others are those who are emerging as top-rate, innovative environmental managers and specialists.

The list is not the be-all and end-all of individual environmental or sustainability knowledge. But all said, the honorees provide their companies with results that are worthy of recognition.

The individuals listed below will be recognized at a celebratory networking reception on June 6 as part of the Environmental Leader Conference at the Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center.
