About Us

The Environmental Engagement section of the PEGNL web site is maintained by the Environment Committee to help promote environmentally conscious engineering and geoscience practice. The website provides information on environmental issues to the PEGNL membership through access to education, events, and new and relevant environmental regulations, planning and information. The Environmental Engagement section also provides information on the PEGNL Environmental Award. The award recognizes the application of sound environmental principles in engineering and geoscience execution in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The Environment Committee meets monthly. Participation and input from the PEGNL membership is encouraged.
