Environmental Award Nominees Needed


The Alberta Emerald Foundation for Environmental Excellence once again needs information on the Alberta people, companies, community groups and other organizations that give the environment an extra helping of care and attention. For its 12th annual Emerald Awards, the foundation seeks nominations of those who have "demonstrated excellence in activities to protect, preserve, enhance and sustain our environment."

Nominations can be made in a variety of categories, among them small or large business, corporate or institutional leadership, research and innovation, individual commitment, not-for-profit association or community group, education, government institution and climate change. A new youth award will recognize initiatives by young people up to the age of 25.

In order to be considered for an Emerald Award, a person or initiative should demonstrate:

  • A commitment to preservation, protection, enhancement or sustainablity of the environment
  • Positive, tangible and long-term impact on quality of air, water or land, preservation of biological diversity, or public or corporate attitudes towards the environment.

Where appropriate, judging will acknowledge efforts that reflect collaborative, team or partnership approaches.
Nominations close Friday, Feb. 28. Judging takes place during April and the awards celebration will be held June 11 at the the EPCOR Centre for the Performing Arts in Calgary.
