At Sedgman we have a proud history of recognising and rewarding safety and innovation achievements with our Kempnich Safety and Meakin Technical Innovation Awards.
We are excited to announce this year we have introduced the Rod Lamb Sustainability Award which will recognise the achievements of an individual or team that have innovated to make a positive impact on Sedgman’s sustainability performance.
This could be through designs that reduce water use or greenhouse gas impact of facilities, improved construction approaches, waste reduction initiatives, or initiatives with positive social impacts.
The award is being named after Rod Lamb, a former Director and Owner of Sedgman. Rod joined Sedgman in the Sydney office in 1986 as a Process Engineer and worked with Sedgman up until 2007. He has been credited by his Sedgman peers and by those he mentored, for guiding Sedgman to become a leader in minerals processing, driving the company to improve the performance of process plants for more than twenty years.
Rod said that he is honoured to be associated with this award.
‘Sustainability will become Sedgman’s largest innovation direction over the next 30 years with every mine project required to meet sustainability goals’ said Mr Lamb.
Rod is very proud of what he achieved during his 21 years with Sedgman. He found that Sedgman was a great place to work, the camaraderie was all encompassing with a bond that meant work colleagues were friends.
He enjoyed the challenge of innovation, simplifying, making things better. Rod found that extremely rewarding, especially when turning a constraint into a positive such that the new structure or process concept worked.
Rod provided both the initial and long-term push for innovation. Sedgman is focussed on improving efficiency and reducing the energy demand and lifecycle impact of our designs so naming this sustainability award after Rod is fitting.
Rod recently visited the team in the Brisbane office to catch up with some of his former colleagues and mentees and celebrate the inaugural Rob Lamb Sustainability Award.
