For the past 29 years, the Emerald Awards have recognized and celebrated the outstanding environmental achievements of large and small businesses, individuals, not-for-profit associations, community groups, youth, and governments across Alberta.
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.
