The John Byrne Award and The Iris Initiative are proud to be supported by Cairn Energy PLC.
For the past five years, Cairn has provided core financial support to The Iris Initiative, allowing us to run our charity and to deliver and grow The John Byrne Award (JBA). Cairn has shown long-term commitment to our project; they have fostered an encouraging, empowering relationship and provided dedicated and timely support. Hamish Matheson, a Senior Geologist at Cairn, was invited in 2015 by The Iris Initiative to become chairman of the JBA judging panel after three years of providing perceptive and constructive feedback as a judge. Hamish brings experience and insight, and we’re delighted to have him on board. In short, Cairn believes in our vision and has enabled us to do what we do. The Iris Initiative and The John Byrne Award is grateful to Cairn for their continued support.
