Danielle Sylvia Receives the Environmental Business Council of New England Ascending Leader Award

July 27, 2018 – Boston, MA – The Environmental Business Council of New England (EBC) is pleased to announce that Danielle Sylvia, Environmental Engineer with Golder, is a recipient of the 2018 EBC Ascending Leader Award.

Danielle’s career success and advancement recognition at Golder is a result of her strong technical skills, unique perspective on analysis of laboratory analytical data, and leadership both internally and externally. She provides support for a variety of projects, including hazardous waste site characterization and remediation, and plays a key role providing compliance support with the U.S. EPA 2015 Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) Final Rule. Danielle provides strategic analysis, interpretation, and reporting of analytical environmental data (which includes data validation and statistical analysis) for Golder’s manufacturing and solid waste clients across the nation.

Danielle began her career with Golder in March 2016 as an entry level environmental engineer and was recognized for advancement at the end of 2016. This is particularly notable since Golder holds very high standards for each level of advancement. Recently, because of her strong client service and technical abilities, she was invited to participate in Golder’s rigorous internal project management training; a request generally reserved for staff who have been with Golder for five years or more.

Danielle co-leads Golder’s New England Professional Development Group (PDG), an internal group that provides mentorship, peer support and professional development opportunities for Golder staff. Danielle has revitalized the New England PDG by coordinating speakers and activities relative to professional development and technical issues, reconnecting this group to Golder’s active international PDG, and demonstrating leadership among her peers.

In addition to her leadership within Golder, Danielle is a member of the Environmental Business Council Ascending Professionals Committee Leadership Team and has brought new energy to the New Hampshire young professionals, planning programs and events that have galvanized activity in a historically less-active Chapter state.

Each year, the EBC recognizes young professionals in the energy and environmental sectors demonstrating exceptional leadership and industry involvement early in their careers. Recipients are leaders within their own organizations, often acting as mentors to junior staff, providing thought leadership on critical issues, and leading teams on difficult or large projects. They also represent their organizations through participation in industry associations and committees, supporting the growth of the environmental and energy sectors. Early career success and rapid advancement in the industry are hallmarks of award recipients, who are often involved civically as well.

Danielle will be honored at the EBC Annual Summer Garden Party in Boston on August 9, 2018.

The Environmental Business Council of New England (EBC) was established in 1990 by environmental and energy company executives who began meeting on a regular basis to exchange ideas and share experiences. The EBC was the first organization in the United States established to support and foster the development of the environmental industry. The goal of the EBC is to enhance business and job growth of both established and emerging environmental and energy businesses.
