Who can apply?

The European Business Awards for the Environment are underpinned by a series of national environmental award schemes held in the 27 Member States and EU candidate countries.

The competition is open to companies officially registered in one of the 27 Member States as well as in candidate countries. Companies that wish to apply for the EBAE must have already succeeded at the national level – only winners and runners-up of the national competitions and specially commended companies may apply to the European Awards for the Environment.

Direct entries are not possible. Applicants must first have entered one of the national award schemes and be chosen to compete at European level. Submission of entries to the European awards competition is managed by national coordinating bodies.

Each country can send a maximum of 12 entries with a maximum of 4 entries in each category to enter the European Award scheme.

Each country is responsible for organising its own national competition.
