Winners announced at the 35th Offshore Achievement Awards
The winners of the 2022 Offshore Achievement Awards have been revealed at the Offshore Achievement Awards dinner. More than 400 guests celebrated the exceptional achievements and outstanding performance of companies and individuals in the offshore energy industry at a black-tie ceremony held at the P&J Live in Aberdeen (Thursday 17th March 2022). Applications were received nearly a year ago, and despite the considerable delay due to COVID-19 and lockdown restrictions, the award winners were delighted to celebrate their recognitions and receive their awards.
In the new ‘Diversity and Inclusion’ category, judges received a wide range of applications which recognised excellence in developing and implementing policies, systems and practices that seek to nurture and support diversity and inclusivity in the offshore energy sector.
The ‘Net Zero’ category saw entries from companies that have reduced the carbon footprint of their operations along with technology advances that will help Scotland and the UK achieve their net zero targets.
The Young Professional category received the highest number of entries to date, which is a great indication that the future of the industry is in good hands as it transitions to a low carbon future.
