Annual Leadership Awards

Leadership Award Application Period opens up April 1, 2018

The Maryland Green Registry Leadership Awards are presented each year to five organizations that have shown a strong commitment to sustainable practices, measurable results, and continual improvement. The winners represent a variety of facility types and sizes, but all have several key factors in common that contribute to their success: an organization-wide commitment to environmental performance, a green team that meets on a regular basis, annual environmental goals and measurement of results.
This year's awards application period will run from April 1, 2018 to April 30, 2018 and the application will be posted on this page. Applicants must be members to join, which is free and easy to do. See information on joining here​.  

Maryland Department of the Environment Secretary Ben Grumbles will present the 2018 awards at an evening networking event held in partnership with One Montgomery Green and the U.S. Green Building Council Maryland on June 28, 2018 at the beautiful Brookside Gardens in Wheaton.  More information to follow.
