ECO BEST AWARD 2020 winners to be announced online

The application deadline for the independent public ECO BEST AWARD 2020 competition for the best products and practices in environmental protection, energy and resource use efficiency is June 30.

The competition's organizational committee decided to hold the awards ceremony online on July 17.

"We hoped the situation in the country would get back to normal by mid-summer, but this hasn't happened. So we decided to plan for a safer awards ceremony. We are very sorry to give up the festival format but sometimes life makes its own adjustments," said Award Executive Director Yelena Khomutova.

As an indicator of responsible business development, the ECO BEST AWARD is designed to highlight and encourage Russian and international companies' best projects in environmental protection and resource efficiency in Russia. The main categories include: Project of the Year, Discovery of the Year, and Product of the Year. There are also categories for the leading company in promoting environmental safety, for contributions to the development of environmental behavior, and for contributions to sustainable development in Russia.
