Excellence Awards are offered across four categories:

APPEA’s EHS secretariat has responded to calls to make the awards more accessible to our associate members.

Associate members are encouraged to apply for project awards, whereby innovative approaches have been employed to support full member field operations.

Full members are expected to showcase a range of initiatives, from the previous calendar year, based on their level of resourcing and should generally nominate for company awards.

Award category nominees will be invited to present their submissions to their peers in a facilitated APPEA Connect style event, with Award winners announced at the APPEA AGM  in Perth in November.
