Request a Grant Writer

Award to a USA, Canada, or International individual or group of individuals to recognize outstanding contributions to the field of environmental sustainability. Nominations will be accepted for scientists, urban development experts, economists, energy specialists, poverty adversaries, and others specializing in a broad range of disciplines related to the environment and sustainability. The nominee's research should be based on scientific grounds but must clearly show impacts outside of the specific discipline, such as impacts on policy development, sustainability, or contribution to changed behavior.

The Volvo Environment Prize is presented by an independent foundation with the purpose of rewarding and promoting outstanding scientific discoveries, research, or innovations which in broad terms fall within the environmental and sustainability field. Since the first award in 1990 the Volvo Environment Prize has become one of the scientific world’s most respected environmental prizes.

Laureates represent all fields of environmental and sustainability studies and initiatives. They represent a wide span of knowledge and areas of importance for the environment. Previous laureates include economists, biologists, environmental scientists, energy specialists, urban development experts, resource and hazard specialists, poverty adversaries and others who are exploring the path to sustainability.

Nominations must include a detailed description of the research the nominee has conducted and how it adds to our knowledge around environmental science. Main achievements and their importance should be emphasized.
