Annual EBEE Awards
Each year, the Environmental Business Council of New England (EBC) recognizes companies, organizations and individuals for outstanding accomplishment in environmental management, energy resources and management, and climate change through the EBEE Awards.

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.
