Bringing together the most prominent and influential individuals in the industry, ICIS Power Players Awards is an important opportunity to celebrate like-minded senior executives. The awards recognise those who are making a positive impact on their companies and markets, and who are cooperating to solve problems in the chemicals and energy sectors.

In conjunction with the longstanding ICIS Top 40 Power Players Rankings, the newly launched awards are a set of peer- and industry-voted awards. The ICIS CEO of the Year Award is a peer-voted award from amongst those honoured in the Ranking, with an External Judging Panel deciding the winner of the ICIS Emerging Leader and the ICIS Sustainability Leader awards.

Three award categories
