Each year, the Environmental Business Council of New England (EBC) recognizes companies, organizations and individuals for outstanding environmental / energy accomplishments in the promotion of a sustainable, clean environment through the EBEE Awards. The EBEE Awards are presented at the EBC’s Annual Award Celebration, held annually in June. These awards were established by the EBC to encourage companies, government agencies, non-profit organizations, and environmental professionals to serve as models for others to emulate and, in doing so, further the mission and objectives of the EBC. The 2017 Annual Meeting and EBEE Awards Celebration occurred on Thursday June 8, 2017 at the Marriott Copley Place.
