The Volvo Environment Prize 2019 is open. The Volvo Environment Prize is awarded for outstanding innovations or scientific discoveries which in broad terms fall within the environmental field. Since the first award in 1990 the Volvo Environment Prize has become one of the scientific world’s most respected environmental prizes.
The Volvo Environment Prize is awarded by an independent foundation. A Scientific Committee does the initial screening and evaluation of candidates. The International Prize Jury, a group of internationally renowned scientists, makes the final selection of prize laureate.
The Volvo Environment Prize is awarded annually. The Prize consists of a hand-crafted diploma, a glass sculpture and a cash award for SEK 1.5 million (approximately EUR 145,000 or USD 167,000).
The award ceremony is in Stockholm in November each year.
