The Arlington Green Patriot Awards recognize an individual and a business/organization that exemplify environmental sustainability in more than one aspect of their recent life or operations in order to better civic life in Arlington, Virginia.

The Award is sponsored by George Mason University’s Arlington Campus in conjunction with the Arlington Chamber of Commerce’s Green Business Committee, Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment and the Arlington County Office of Sustainability and Environmental Management.

The award was established in 2012 and has been celebrated each spring to coincide with Earth Day. A multi-sectoral selection committee of environmental leaders reviews the nominees and awards the individual and business/organization most embodying the spirit of the award. (See below for a list of past winners.). Two distinct awards are given: one for an individual, one for a business or organization.

Nominations for the 2017 awards will be accepted by close of business on Monday, April 10, 2017. Submit your nomination here. The awards will be presented on Wednesday, April 19 at 7:00 p.m. at the Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment screening of the film, “This Changes Everything,” at the Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse, 2903 Columbia Pike, Arlington, VA 22204.
