The Green Apple Awards

Welcome to the Green Apple Environment Awards, the annual international campaign to recognise, reward and promote environmental best practice around the world.


The Green Apple Environment Awards were launched in 1994 by The Green Organisation and have become well established as one of the most popular environmental campaigns in the world.

Winners will be offered discounted admission tickets for the prizegiving ceremony, to be presented with their International Green Apple Awards in the House of Commons, Palace of Westminster, London, in November.

If you are doing anything that helps the environment, we would like to hear about it.


If you have made a positive impact on the environment or are doing anything to improve sustainability, we would like to see an entry from you – whether you are an individual, a company, council or international corporation.

There is no entry fee to pay and entries close on JUNE 30 EVERY YEAR.

If you have any queries, please call Roger Wolens on 01604 810507 or email


We have asked Green Apple Award winners what their success has achieved for their business and these are the survey results.

95% found their employees are proud of the company’s success

93% received coverage on TV, radio or newspapers

88% said the benefits exceeded their expectations

73% said they had won business as a result

42% believed the value of their business had increased

11% received grants/loans on the strength of their success

The Green Apple Awards for Environmental Best Practice was The Green Organisation’s first initiative when it launched in 1994, and it has gone from strength to strength ever since.

Initially aimed only at local authorities, we were soon asked to organise a similar scheme for commerce and industry.  Then there was growing interest from overseas, so all of these sectors are now a permanent fixture on the calendar with a presentation ceremony every November in the House of Commons.

As usual, all of our winners in each category will be presented with handsome Green Apple trophies.

Our awards are now in their eighteenth year and well established as one of the major environmental recognition schemes, both in the UK and internationally.

The Green Apple Awards campaign was one of the first to be invited to become an automatic accredited feeder scheme into the European Business Awards for the Environment.

The Green Apple Awards is still one of only a few schemes that meet the exacting criteria of the Brussels-led EBAEs, and several Green Apple Award winners have gone on to win European recognition in this way.

All entries submitted for a Green Apple Award have the chance to represent their country in the European competition.
