Each year, the Environmental Business Council of New England (EBC) recognizes companies, organizations and individuals for outstanding accomplishments in the promotion of a sustainable, clean environment through the EBEE Awards Celebration. The EBEE Awards are presented each year in June at the EBC’s Annual Award Celebration. These awards were established by the EBC to encourage environmental 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.
