Background of EcoFriend Awards
The EcoFriend Award was developed and launched by NEA in 2007, to recognize and honour individuals who have initiated and volunteered personal time to actively contribute to the protection, promotion and enhancement of Singapore’s clean and green environment. This annual award also aims to encourage and inspire individuals at all stages and walks of life to do their part for the environment, by showing that an individual’s effort can have a significant, lasting and positive impact on our environment. There are five categories in the awards: Private Sector, Public Sector, Educational Institutions, Non-Government Organisations and Grassroots Volunteers, Youth and Students. Over the years, we have recognised individuals from the 3P sectors who have contributed towards environmental sustainability through their efforts in their organisation and the community. Information on the past award recipients can be found on www.nea.gov.sg/ecofriend.
