King County Green Globe Awards

Recognizing Outstanding achievement in Environmental Stewardship

2013 Green Globe Awards

The Green Globe award is the most prestigious environmental award presented by King County every two years. The award recognizes projects that excel in leadership and activities that foster stewardship by protecting the environment, managing natural resources and benefiting the community.

Nominees are selected by King County program managers. These are the general criteria for Green Globe Award winners:

  • The nominee has shown leadership in activities that foster environmental stewardship in the community by protecting the environment, managing natural resources and encouraging community involvement.
  • Leadership can be rated on the basis of long-term commitments to environmental stewardship or by a single innovation that signifies a major advance in environmental stewardship.
  • The nominee needs to have accomplished these goals by working in partnership with King County programs.
  • No repeat winners within 10 years, or five award cycles, with the exception of the Environmental Catalyst.
