Call for nominations for the Queen's New Year Honours 2017

15 December 2015

Do you know someone working within the environmental sciences sector who deserves to be recognised for their outstanding contribution, their achievements in public life, and/or their commitment to serving and helping Britain?

If so, then give them a chance to receive national recognition for all their hard work by nominating them for a UK honour. Honours are a distinctive way of acknowledging someone's achievements, rewarding people who have made a real difference to society.

Anyone can nominate someone for an honour; this can be done by completing the UK honours form in full and following the guidance documents listed below. This will then be considered as part of the science nominations by an independent committee. There is considerable competition for honours, and the assessment is rigorous, so the citation is the most important piece of evidence for the honours committee to consider.

Note: All nominations are treated in the strictest confidence. The nominee should not be informed that they have been nominated.
