Over the years, various individuals and corporate organizations have continued to contribute to the process of making the environment better. Most of these individuals and corporate organizations are often not noticed or recognized for their contributions to the environment. In view of this, the Lagos State Government through the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources has instituted an environmental award tagged ‘’Lagos Green Award’’. The Lagos Green Award is designed to recognise individuals and corporate organisations who have contributed to making the Lagos Environment better.

Lagos Green Award will recognize individuals, groups or businesses whose actions improved environmental resilience in the city of Lagos in the areas of:

• Best Environmental Practices
• Oil Spill Management
• Health, Safety & Environmental Performance
• Waste Prevention & Recycling
• Solid Waste Treatment & Disposal
• Emissions Control Technologies
• Natural Resources Conservation
• Innovation and Sustainable Solutions

This level of recognition is competition-based, participating units will be assessed against separate sets of environmental performance criteria which may encompass some of those used in the assessment of the various sectors.
