Tyler Prize for Environmental Achievement
Established in 1973 by the late John and Alice Tyler, the Tyler Prize for Environmental Achievement is one of the first international premier awards for environmental science, environmental health and energy.
Recipients encompass the spectrum of environmental concerns, including environmental policy, health, air and water pollution, ecosystem disruption and loss of biodiversity, and energy resources.
Tyler Laureates receive a $200,000 prize and are presented a commemorative medallion and plaque at an award ceremony. The Prize is awarded by the international Tyler Prize Executive Committee with the administrative support of the University of Southern California.
