The Green Apple Awards are one of the few RSA-accredited campaigns that act as feeder schemes into the European Business Awards for the Environment.
As part of this relationship, our major winners will also be considered to represent their country in the EBAEs and several Green Apple Award winners have progressed to win this important international recognition.
The International Green Apple Awards for Environmental Best Practice were launched in 1994 and they have since become a prestigious annual event: one of the major award schemes recognising and rewarding environmental endeavour around the world.
There is no entry fee and nominations are invited from anyone who has made a positive contribution to the environment, or made efforts to reduce their own impact.
