The Environmental Award of the Year competition, organised by the Ministry of the Environment, is a competition the aim of which is to recognise individuals and institutions/enterprises that care about our environment and make sure that others do as well. The objective of the competition is to determine specific environmental deeds which have a positive effect on the environment or which have increased people’s environmental awareness. With the winners of the competition, we also wish to encourage other enterprises, organisations and individuals to use similar environmentally friendly solutions.
The competition is open to anyone whose environmentally friendly deeds have been executed in the last 12 months. Nominations can be either self-nominations or nominating the environmental deed of someone else.
