It’s time to vote for this year’s Resource Hot 100!

Who across the waste and resources world has played their cards right this year and proved themselves to be the industry's Top Trump? It's time for you to tell us!

It’s time to vote for this year’s Resource Hot 100Now in its 15th year, Resource magazine's Hot 100 is a list of the 100 most influential, creative and downright important people that have made a key difference to the way our precious natural resources are being managed and protected.

Voting for this year's Hot 100 is now open, giving you the chance to nominate and vote for those you think need to be on the list.

Who rates highest for Inspiration? Who will prove unbeatable on Innovation? Who has used their Influence for good and who has fought for Improvement?

Last year, Mary Creagh MP, Chair of Parliament's Environmental Audit Committee, took top spot on the list, winning fans for her work leading the government to take action on, among other things, microbeads, environmental protections post-Brexit, the sale of the Green Investment Bank and food waste.

The Top 10 contained a number of new faces and represented the broad spectrum of resource management including reuse, activism, international development, blogging, community recycling and municipal operations.

So, with another turbulent twelve months almost behind us, who will be this year's leader of the pack?
