Nominations open for the 2007 Green Toronto Awards
  
Nominations for the third annual Green Toronto Awards - the City of Toronto’s environmental awards of excellence - are now open. The awards recognize individuals, community groups and companies that are contributing in various ways to Toronto’s environmental well-being.

“The Green Toronto Awards are a terrific way for the City to celebrate the residents, groups and businesses that are helping make Toronto one of the greenest cities in the world,” said Mayor David Miller. “There is tremendous passion and creativity in this city, especially for all things of an environmental nature. I encourage people to submit nominations for this year’s Green Toronto Awards.”

The deadline for nominations and any supporting materials is Friday, February 16 at 5 p.m. Nominated projects, individuals or companies must operate or reside in the City of Toronto to be eligible, and the activities must have been in progress during 2006. Elected officials, City of Toronto staff and previous winners of Green Toronto Awards are not eligible.

The awards are presented in partnership with the City of Toronto and Green Living Enterprises, with the generous support of corporate and media sponsors. There are 10 categories for the 2007 awards: community projects; energy conservation; environmental awareness; green design; green roof; health; leadership; market transformation; water efficiency; and youth.

Corporate sponsors of this year’s awards are AutoShare, Enbridge, Genuine Health, Loblaw Companies Limited, TD Bank Financial Group, Toronto Community Foundation, Toronto Hydro and Toronto Water.

The 10 recipients will each receive a Green Toronto Award and $5,000 to donate to the environmental organization of their choice. The City will hold a public reception to honour the winners on May 1.
