The European Business Awards for the Environment
Any business, no matter how large or how small can make a difference in creating Green Growth and Jobs and in helping to solve today’s environmental challenges and in the fight against climate change. The European Business Awards for the Environment (EBAE) celebrates those companies at the forefront of eco-innovation, or that have a respect for the environment at the very core of their business principles.
The European Business Awards for the Environment were established by the European Commission Environment Directorate-General in 1987. The awards are held every second year, and winners are recognised in the following four categories: management, product and services, process innovation, and international business cooperation, with a special mention for business and biodiversity.
EBAE activities take place at both national and European levels, with participation open to companies from all EU Member States and candidate countries. Companies must first succeed in their national competition, before they can participate in the bi-annual European Business Awards for the Environment. National coordinating bodies manage submission of entries. Direct entries are not possible.This means that the companies who win a European Business Award for the Environment are ‘the best of the best’; the most far-sighted, responsible and innovative across Europe.
The shortlist for the 2016-2017 European Business Awards for the Environment will be decided at a two-day jury meeting in Bratislava, Slovakia in September 2016.
