Q.  What are the Maryland Green Leadership Awards?

A.  The annual Leadership Awards are presented to Maryland Green Registry members that have demonstrated a strong commitment to sustainable practices, measurable results, and continual improvement. Past winners have typically accomplished this by setting annual goals, tracking results, maintaining active green teams and repeating this process year after year.  

Q. Do I have to be a big company to win?

A. No, not at all! The winning combination of active green teams, annual goals, measurement, and commitment to continual improvement applies equally across all organization types and sizes. In fact, several past winners have been organizations with fewer than 20 employees and have provided outstanding examples of employee engagement and commitment.  

Q.   How do I apply?

A.   You’ve already shared information through your member profile so the application asks for brief responses to just two questions regarding your key practices, results and examples of commitment to continuing improvement.  Applications are due April 27 and may be download here:
