Over the past decade, more than 250 organizations and individuals with distinguished contributions to environment protection have been honored with this type of award.

This year, 50 out of 150 organizations and individuals were selected to receive the Award as they have made tremendous efforts to improve the public’s awareness of environment protection, to increase forestry coverage, and to develop environment-friendly products and services.

The Việt Nam Environment Award is the only official award by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE) that is carried out every two years./.
