40 Under 40 Recognition Program

40 Under 40 Banner

The American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists is proud to introduce the AAEES 40 Under 40 Recognition Program.

This program was introduced to recognize talented individuals who have, either personally or as part of a team, been responsible for helping to advance the fields of Environmental Science or Environmental Engineering in a demonstrable way within the last 12 months. Winners are chosen by a panel of past recipients who weigh equally business successes and civic/philanthropic activities.

The 2022 Inaugural Class was announced at the 2022 AAEES Awards Ceremony and will be profiled on our social media pages. They are:
