At the 39th AMIGO meeting on 6 July 2021 new initiatives were presented. Among other things, the members agreed to create the AMIGO International Award in recognition of a professional career in the field of odour management or an important development in this field.
The winners of the AMIGO Odour Management Awards will be selected by an international jury of odour management experts and will receive their award during a prestigious ceremony that will take place in Bilbao (Spain) on 26 October 2021,
Some main objectives of the association are to promote, develop and disseminate the importance of the proper odour management and to generate actions to promote the development of the sector and raise awareness among society and administrations of the importance of Odour Management in the Environment.

The deadline for nominations for this award is 9 September, so AMIGO encourages anyone to submit a nomination. Nominations must be supported by at least 3 people from different organizations.
