The Green Ribbon Awards are one of New Zealand’s longest running and most prestigious environmental awards. They recognise the amazing work done by individuals, communities and organisations around the country to maintain and improve our unique environment.
The Green Ribbons are run by Department of Conservation and Ministry for the Environment and have largely been in the same format for 25 years. We're taking a break to make the Green Ribbon Awards even better. We'll be back soon.
Find out about the inspirational work of winners and finalists of the 2017 Awards on the Green ribbon website.
In the section below you can read the stories of winners and finalists from previous years.
