About the Emeralds

  • Each year from November until February, the Alberta Emerald Foundation receives Emerald Award nominations in 12 established categories.
  • A panel of knowledgeable judges with cross-sectoral experience carry out an independent evaluation based on established criteria to select the finalists and recipients.
  • Uniquely Albertan, the Emerald Awards are the only accolades of their kind in Canada that showcase environmental excellence across all sectors.
  • By showcasing the ingenuity, dedication and hard work of our recipients and finalists, others will follow; the innovative will become the norm, resulting in a healthier and cleaner environment.
