The Emerald Award Program is designed to recognize businesses, government, individuals, or organizations in Broward County demonstrating a commitment to protecting and preserving our environment. The Emerald Award Program recognizes exemplary performance in the following categories:

Every applicant for an Emerald Award is required to be free of environmental enforcement actions for a period of one year before the date the application is submitted. Each Emerald Award category has its own set of additional requirements.

When applicants successfully fulfill the requirements for any of the identified categories, they become eligible for an Emerald Award Certificate. Emerald Award Certificate recipients will also have their names and addresses placed on the Emerald Award web site and will receive beneficial advertisement recognizing their achievements.

At the end of the calendar year, all Emerald Award Certificate recipients will be reviewed and the recipients that excel in each category may be selected for an Emerald Award Trophy. The Emerald Award Trophy winners will be invited to attend an award ceremony and reception. At the Emerald Award Trophy Ceremony, an Environmental Business of the Year Emerald Award will also be issued to the one recipient who has excelled in efforts to protect the environment.
