We are excited to announce that the nomination period for the 2022 YVR Green Excellence Awards is now open! Since 2011, the YVR Green Excellence Award has commended and awarded Sea Island organizations for the steps they have taken to reduce the environmental impact of operations and raise awareness of environmental issues through education and outreach.

The YVR Green Excellence Award recognizes Sea Island organizations for their efforts in one or many of the following areas:

  1. Saving energy and/or fuel,
  1. Reducing waste,
  2. Conserving potable water,
  3. Improving ecosystem health on Sea Island, and
  4. Supporting employees and engaging customers/partners on environmental issues.

If this describes your organization, or if you know of another organization that deserves recognition for their green efforts, please complete the online nomination form by Monday, November 14, 2022 at 5:00 PM.


In 2021, three businesses were awarded the YVR Green Excellence Award: Air Canada, Hertz Canada, and Purolator. These businesses were recognized for their unique efforts in reducing the environmental impact of operations, through ways such as making upgrades to energy systems to improve energy efficiency of their facilities to save energy, implementing electric vehicles for business operations, and improving their commercial and office recycling programs.

These businesses also helped to raise awareness of environmental issues through education and outreach by taking actions such as running environmental awareness events and programs for employees and customers, promoting green commuting options, and forming an employee “green team” to further support initiatives to reduce the environmental impact of operations.
