Each year, the Environmental Business Journal (EBJ) recognizes outstanding business performance in the environmental industry with their Business Achievement Awards. Rincon Consultants, Inc. was chosen to receive the EBJ Silver Medal award for Business Achievement: Small Firms. This is the second year in a row Rincon has been chosen for this award which recognizes growth across a number of categories.
EBJ provides strategic information and market forecasts for 14 business segments, including environmental remediation, water & wastewater, air pollution control and consulting/engineering. In late 2016, EBJ solicited industry, government, non-profits and the broader climate change community via e-mail, social media, its website, industry events and word-of-mouth for nominations for the 2016 EBJ Business Achievement Awards. Nominations were accepted in 200-word essays in either specific or unspecified categories. Final awards were determined by a committee of EBJ staff and EBJ editorial advisory board members.
The 2016 EBJ awards will be presented at a special ceremony at the Environmental Industry Summit XV in San Diego on March 22, 2017. The Environmental Industry Summit is an annual three-day executive retreat that includes presentations on the current state of the industry, climate change, and resilience in the face of a transforming industry. John Dreher, Principal, and Linda Hunter, Business Development Manager, will be attending and accepting the award on behalf of Rincon.
