Submissions opening soon for 2021 APPEA Environment and Safety Excellence Awards

The 2021 APPEA Environment and Safety Excellence Awards are set to return to the APPEA Conference this year, following last year’s virtual ceremony. The APPEA Environment and Safety Excellence Awards celebrate Australian oil and gas companies’ commitment to environment and safety practices, which are among the highest industry standards in the world.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the event. APPEA created the Awards in 2001 to highlight the exemplary work being done by its members across several categories. Awards are available for individual companies and projects and split into four categories judged by an independent panel.

These categories include: Company Environment Excellence; Company Safety Excellence; Project Environment Excellence; and Project Safety Excellence.

Applications for submissions open 5 March and run through to 30 April, with awards to be presented to the winners as part of the annual APPEA Conference and Exhibition, held from 14–17 June in Perth.

Entries can be lodged through a streamlined Awards submission portal, which will be available from the start of the submission period. Please note submissions should focus on performance, projects, and initiatives from the previous calendar year.
