The Green World Awards


for Environmental Best Practice by Companies, Organisations and Governments

The International Green Apple Environment Awards were launched in 1994 and have become one of the world’s most prestigious recognition campaigns.

THE GREEN WORLD AWARDS have been launched as the top tier of the Green Apple Awards – enabling companies and organisations to win environmental recognition not only for themselves, but also for their countries.

To this end, we also invite entries from local, regional and national governments around the world.

To mark the success of our highest-scoring winners each year, WE WILL HOST THE FOLLOWING YEAR’S PRESTIGIOUS PRESENTATION CEREMONY IN THEIR HOMELAND, at zero cost to them and with winners invited from around the world.

Our judges will always take into consideration the level of commitment that can be afforded by each applicant – so that poorer areas have just as much chance of success as richer ones.
