The European Business Awards for the Environment are presented by the European Commission every two years and aim to recognise and reward European companies that set an example by successfully bringing together innovation, economic viability and environmental concerns. The scheme comprises four award categories in which companies are rewarded for management practices, products, processes and international business cooperation activities that contribute to economic and social development without detriment to the environment.
Since 2012, companies applying for one of the existing categories are also able to compete to a new award, the 'Business and Biodiversity' Award.The European Business Awards for the Environment's steering committee has drawn up a number of general and specific criteria per category. These criteria will give applicants a better idea of what the judges are looking for.
