ABA Award for Excellence in Environmental, Energy, and Resources Stewardship
The ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources invites nominations for the 2013 ABA Award for Excellence in Environmental, Energy, and Resources Stewardship. This award was established in 2002 to recognize and honor the accomplishments of a person, organization, or group that has distinguished itself in environmental, energy, and resources stewardship.
Nominees must be people, entities, or organizations that have made significant accomplishments or demonstrated recognized leadership in the areas of sustainable development, energy, environmental, or resources stewardship. This may include a major development in law or policy that serves to enhance conservation, responsible development, prudent resource use, and pollution abatement or mitigation, or it may be a recognition for a sustained period of leadership in the development of law and policy in this area. The Award may also be given for significant achievements in legal practice or in business; including corporate charitable contributions of funds, land, or resources; in written articles; in teaching; in advocacy before courts, agencies, legislators, or other institutions; or for any other significant achievement that evidences excellence in environmental, energy, and resources stewardship. Although achievement or leadership can have been exhibited over a number of years or with respect to a single substantial accomplishment, the Section is particularly interested in nominations that can point to specific milestones of achievement by those persons or entities being nominated, with an emphasis on creative thinking, diligence in execution of a plan or program, or sustained progress in innovation or leadership.
