Port of Seattle Environmental Excellence Awards

Submissions for the 2018 Environmental Excellence Awards Extended through February 15, February 22, 2019!

Every spring the Port of Seattle recognizes outstanding environmental accomplishments of customers, tenants, non-profits and business partners with the annual Environmental Excellence Awards. Award winners serve as role models and demonstrate environmental leadership in their operations at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and Port of Seattle maritime facilities and are crucial partners in helping the Port achieve its environmental stewardship and sustainability goals set forth in the Century Agenda.

What types of activities are eligible?

The Port will accept nominations for any project, process or activity that demonstrates environmental leadership and sustainability. Customers, tenants, non-profits and partners operating and/or providing services or supplies to the Port of Seattle are eligible to apply. Interested applicants may nominate themselves or others.  Port staff will evaluate each nomination using specific criteria for each of the following award categories:

  • Environmental Performance
  • Environmental Education and Outreach
  • Environmental Innovation

What award types are available?

The Port may issue two different award types:

  • Environmental Excellence Award
    Our traditional award recognizes actions demonstrating significant performance, education and outreach, or innovation, and commitment to supporting Port sustainability objectives.
  • Small Business Award
    This award is for small, minority/women-owned, or disadvantaged businesses whose actions demonstrate significant performance, education, and outreach, or innovation, and commitment to supporting Port sustainability objectives. 

The Port may also recognize nominations with an Honorable Mention to highlight notable accomplishments that demonstrate meaningful support for Port sustainability objectives but did not receive top honors.
