The Governor's Environmental Excellence Awards Program is New Jersey’s premier awards program for recognizing outstanding environmental performance, programs and projects throughout the state. These awards recognize individuals, businesses, institutions, communities, organizations, educators, youth and others who have made significant contributions to environmental protection in New Jersey.

"Honoring our environmental leaders every year reaffirms to all that New Jersey is committed to protecting the environment and setting a national example by reducing the impacts of climate change, repairing water infrastructure and improving sustainability. The work of those nominated for excellence in protecting our environment benefits everyone."

                            - Catherine R. McCabe, Commissioner

To date, 179 award winners have been recognized since the program was established in 2000.

The awards program is sponsored by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, the New Jersey Infrastructure Bank and the New Jersey Corporation for Advanced Technology, in partnership with the New Jersey State League of Municipalities.
