The 11th Annual Mayor's Greenovate Awards are now accepting nominations.

It's that time of year again! Mayor Walsh and Greenovate Boston are accepting nominations for our annual Greenovate Awards. In celebration of Earth Day, the Greenovate Boston Awards recognize outstanding achievement in climate action and environmental sustainability among the Boston community, including our businesses, community organizations, nonprofits, residents, and institutions. We are looking for climate champions that make an impact on Boston and its environment every day.

This year we’re doing things a little different. Once we gather all the nominees, we will open the process up to the public to vote for their favorite nominee in each category.

Award categories

Like last year, this year's awards categories focus on the themes of the Greenovate Boston Climate Action Plan, which include:

  • Waste Reduction
  • Community Engagement
  • Buildings and Energy
  • Sustainable Food
  • Trees, Open Space, and Landscaping
  • Sustainable Mobility
  • Climate Preparedness and Resiliency

Want to nominate a business, community organization, nonprofit, resident, or institution in your community taking climate action? Please complete our online form. Nominations are open until March 26th. Online voting will take place March 27 - April 7.
