The number of nominations for the Environment Prize is increasing.

“The field of environment and sustainability research is becoming much broader, larger in scale, and far more complex”, says Will Steffen, chairman of the Prize Jury.

“These are very exciting times, as the need for such research becomes better recognized in the policy and corporate worlds. It is also good for the Volvo Environment Prize, because we are getting so many outstanding candidates and, thus, world-class laureates”.

The jury hands its recommendation to the Foundation’s board for the final decision. The announcement is normally in early October and the award ceremony is in November each year.
