Nominations sought for Governor's Environmental Excellence Award

Sep 05, 2018

The Department of Environmental Protection and Gov. Paul LePage encourage entities that have gone above and beyond required regulations by implementing innovative practices that have meaningful environmental and economic benefits to apply for the state’s environmental excellence award. This is an opportunity for businesses, nonprofits, public entities and the people of Maine to be recognized for their work to improve and protect Maine’s natural resources.

The award categories include: Innovation, Sustainability and Environmental Stewardship. This year’s award criteria and categories have been redesigned to focus on the extraordinary efforts that have resulted in economic savings, as well as protection and improvement of Maine’s environment.

Award applicants will be asked to explain how their recent project or program was innovative, collaborative and resulted in measurable and meaningful environmental and economic benefits. Completed application forms are due to the department by Friday, Oct. 5.
