IENE recognizes and awards outstanding efforts made to reduce the detrimental effects of transport infrastructure on nature and enhance its potential for a positive influence. Such efforts may appear as extraordinary impact assessments, mitigation plans or technical measures at local, national or regional scale; research achievements, information, education or promotion activities. The IENE Award comprises a public recognition and does not include any grants.

The awards are given each year in two variants:

– The IENE Personal Award appreciates outstanding engagement and special achievements made by individuals that are not necessarily related to a particular activity.
– The IENE Project Award appreciates extraordinary work accomplished by initiatives, activities or plans.
