Daniel Robinson Wins 2012 Young Achiever of the Year

Posted on November 1st in Latest News, Media.

Environmental Earth Sciences’ employee Daniel Robinson has won the Young Achiever Award 2012 from the NSW Australian Contaminated Land Consultants Association (ACLCA), the fourth year in a row for an Environmental Earth Sciences employee to be bestowed with this honour.

The ACLCA Young Achiever Award supports and recognises the work of young scientists in the contaminated land consultant industry. Competition entrants must be under 30 years of age with less than 5 years experience in the field.

Daniel’s presentation entitled ‘Managing Point Source Contamination: A Case Study” secured him the top honour after impressing a judging panel at the ACLCA’s Young Achiever Award presentation night. Utilising the event as an opportunity for personal growth, Daniel found the experience to be highly beneficial, “In a time where commitment to the environment and the earth’s resources is becoming a significant concern in the public sphere, this forum is vital for young scientists to receive the full support and encouragement required to ensure that our ecological future is secured.”

Last year, Environmental Earth Sciences employee Matthew Miklos was named Young Achiever of the Year. In 2010, Environmental Earth Sciences employee Alice Plioplis won the top distinction, with another Environmental Earth Sciences employee, Joshua Bray taking out second place. Previously, Environmental Earth Science’s Matt Rendell achieved first place in 2009. Our first place winners are all pictured above.

The consistency in our employees winning these awards shows that our team offers clients an industry-leading approach that is less process and more thought, resulting in innovative solutions with a focus on commercial solutions” states Environmental Earth Sciences CEO Philip Mulvey. “With such a strong record already in place, there is little doubt that our employees have the drive and ambition to achieve further industry recognition in the future.
