JBA Consulting are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for three prestigious awards at the 2020 Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) awards, due to be held on the 2nd October in London.
For the second year running we have been shortlisted in the Consultancy of the Year (medium) category. This award recognises high standards of professional practice, and demonstrates our consistent delivery of high quality practical outcomes that benefit business and the economy as well as nature/and or people’s connection with nature. It also demonstrates our commitment to evidence sharing and good practice, supporting the professional development of staff and promotion of the profession of ecology and environmental management.
Ecologist Rebekah Beaumont, based in our Doncaster office, has also been shortlisted in the ‘Promising Professional’ category. This award recognises the valuable skills and knowledge of someone just starting out in their career, and who demonstrates competence and a strong commitment to their professional development.
Thirdly, the Thorne Moors Water Level Management Project has been shortlisted in the ‘Best Practice: Large-scale Nature Conservation’ category. This award recognises flagship projects that enhance biodiversity, ecosystem functioning and sustainable development, and rewards high standards of professionalism and ecological and environmental management practice. This project involved developing a management plan to restore the habitats of England’s largest lowland raised peat bog, involving installation of water level control structures, bunding and vegetation management.
Congratulations to all those who work in JBAs Ecology and Environmental teams for their hard work and dedication, in particular Bekah Beaumont, and Kieran Sheehan, Alex Jones and Darren Whitaker for the Thorne Moors project.
