Greenman Award

The Greenman Award was initiated by the GHGT Conference Series predecessor - International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Removal (ICCDR) as a means to recognise individuals who had made a significant contribution to the field of CO2 removal, storage and utlilisation. The Awards were first given at ICCDR-3.


The Greenman was chosen to represent these achievments as it is an ancient archetype of a human face peering through growing foliage which is often depicted on building, churches and cathedrals. It symbolises the mysteries of creativity, compassion, healing, new beginnings, and especially our connection with nature and the power of humankind working together with nature, the cycles of creation and "man and the forest".

The first recipients of the award at ICCDR-3 were

Prof Yoichi Kaya

Dr Meyer Steinberg

Prof Wim Turkenburg

The Organising Committee of the GHGT series decided to reinstate the award at GHGT-8 in Trondheim. Those who have since been honoured are:
