In 2017, the Safety Excellence Award was presented to Woodside Energy at the APPEA Conference and Exhibition.
Applications are now open and the awards are presented at APPEA’s annual conference dinner.

APPEA Environment Excellence Awards

To be considered for an APPEA Environment Excellence Award, a company must be a full APPEA member.
In 2017, the Environment Excellence Award was presented to Buru Energy at the APPEA Conference and Exhibition in Perth.
