The Governor's Environmental Excellence Awards Program is New Jersey’s premier awards program for recognizing outstanding environmental performance, programs and projects throughout the state. These awards recognize individuals, businesses, institutions, communities, organizations, educators, youth and others who have made significant contributions to environmental protection in New Jersey.

On December 9, nine new award recipients were honored at the 20th annual awards ceremony that was held at the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton. To learn more about the honorees and the awards ceremony, please visit:


“It is truly an honor to recognize these environmental leaders who are shining examples for all of us to follow. Their commitment and dedication provide proof that the spirit of environmentalism remains strong in New Jersey. We congratulate them on their outstanding achievements and thank them for helping to improve the health of our environment – and our quality of life. We are particularly pleased to honor former Governors Kean and Florio, pioneers in protecting the environment who today remain stalwart advocates on environmental issues, including climate change.”

                            - Catherine R. McCabe, Commissioner

To date, 188 award winners have been recognized since the program was established in 2000.

The awards program is sponsored by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, the New Jersey Infrastructure Bank and the New Jersey Corporation for Advanced Technology, in partnership with the New Jersey State League of Municipalities.

The 2020 awards application will be announced in June or July. To be notified of its availability, please contact Marc Rogoff at marc.rogoff@dep.nj.gov or (609) 292-1474.
