Annual Green Achievement Awards

Each year, the Green Energy Ohio presents Green Achievement Awards to individuals, businesses, universities, nonprofits, and government and community entities for the work they have accomplished in advancing GEO’s mission. They are the innovators, collaborators, educators, and leaders in their respective fields throughout Ohio, and we are proud to honor them. 

GEO has presented awards annually in various categories for most of its 20-year history. For the past five years, we have presented Green Achievement Awards to businesses, nonprofit organizations, colleges and universities, and communities or government entities.
