What is the AAEES E3S competition?

The Excellence in Environmental Engineering & Science (E3S) Awards Competition is the Gold Standard for identifying state-of-the-art projects in environmental engineering and science. Its criteria define what it takes to be the best in environmental engineering and science practices: a holistic environmental perspective, innovation, proven performance and customer satisfaction, and contribution to an improved quality of life and economic efficiency.

How can participating in this competition benefit myself and my organization?

E3S winners will be celebrated for their hard work, success and dedication to the industry. E3S winners receive a beautiful award as well as international recognition, announcement at the AAEES Awards Conference in April, AAEES website feature, social media mentions, and webinar speaking opportunities.

Organizations with award-winning projects will be celebrated as they are set apart from competitors. Each winner’s innovation and strategic thinking will be showcased, and potential clients will notice. Receiving such a prestigious award from a well-respected, third-party source will increase the winning firm’s credibility and open new doors to new contacts. The publicity winners receive from winning an AAEES E3S Award is invaluable. The boost in morale and increase in staff motivation will be extremely effective in attracting new staff.
