WHAT ARE THE GREEN APPLE AWARDS?
The Green Apple Environment Awards were established in 1994 as an annual
campaign to recognise, reward and promote environmental best practice around
With an increasing number of entries (and winners) from Scotland, we have decided to give Scotland its own Green Apple Awards – and cut out the travelling to London for the presentation ceremony.
They are FREE TO ENTER and open to anyone who is helping the environment.
The Green Apple Awards was one of the first campaigns to be accepted as an RSA
accredited feeder scheme into the European Business Awards for the Environment, so
Green Apple Award winners are automatically considered to represent their country in
the Brussels-led EBAEs.
There are still only a few UK schemes that have this honour.
WHO CAN ENTER?
Entries are invited from any company, council, community or individual within Scotland.
All of our winners will be invited to attend a glittering presentation
ceremony at the Scottish Parliament building, Holyrood, where they will all be
presented with attractive Green Apple Award trophies.

Simply complete the entry form, and use up to 1000 words to go into more detail on why you should win a Green Apple Award. IF POSSIBLE, please also send a CD version together with your paper entry. Alternatively, you can email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org
