The awards will be presented to CH2M at the 15th Annual Environmental Industry Summit in San Diego, California, where three CH2M experts will be featured panelists.
"Recognizing our best practices for outstanding new achievement in environmental expertise, and our global projects for merit in sustainable water infrastructure is an honor and testament to the technical ability and sustainable vision of our global staff," stated John Mogge, CH2M global environmental market director. "These awards underscore our brand eminence across the industry."
In conferring the awards, the Environmental Business Journal recognized CH2M for:
Creating a new Valuing Nature practice, a global initiative where environmental, engineering and architectural consulting and design services are viewed through a natural resources lens to deliver positive financial benefits, greater environmental stewardship and reduced operational risk. The VN lens identifies opportunities to reduce resource use, avoid environmental impacts, protect and enhance ecosystems, sustain access to resources, harness nature's power, and strengthen stakeholder relations across private and public sector projects.

The $1b Water Tunnel is Thames Water's largest ever infrastructure project and the biggest upgrade to London's sewerage system since Victorian times.
