The Green Ribbon Awards are one of New Zealand’s longest running and most prestigious environmental awards. They recognise the amazing work done by individuals, communities and organisations around the country to maintain and improve our unique environment.
The Green Ribbons are run by Department of Conservation and Ministry for the Environment and have largely been in the same format now for 25 years. We want to make sure that they continue to go from strength to strength, and so we are taking a year off in 2018, while we look at ways we can reach more people, tell more inspiring stories and make the entry process as simple as possible for everyone.
In this section you can read about the inspirational work of past winners and finalists.
