  • environmental pollution prevention,
  • best practices in production process with respect to the environment,
  • projects of research and development in the field of environment,
  • development of environmental protection training and education system,
  • individual contributions to environmental protection advancement or contributions to international co-operation in the field of environmental protection,
  • contributions of associations to the promotion of environmental protection,
  • special contributions to environmental protection.

Candidates meeting the criteria are selected by a Commission of experts and scientists from the respective fields. The Awards ceremony is traditionally organised on the World Environmental Protection Day (5 June).
