The ECO Impact Awards aim to highlight the work of our EPs (Environmental Professionals), EP Auditors, EPts and Employers who demonstrate leadership, commitment to the field and dedication to continuous improvement in the environmental sector.

ECO IMPACT AWARD HISTORY

The awards were developed to create visibility and recognition for the people who are leading the environmental sector in Canada – those with an EP, EP Auditor, or EPt designation, and the organizations that employ them. ECO Canada designates professionals that contribute to the innovation, sustainability and growth of the environmental sector. Our definition of an environmental professional is a progress-focused practitioner who works within a range of industries in Canada and ensures that the projects and work conducted minimize environmental impact.
