community group or not-for-profit association, education and climate change
as well as corporate or institutional leadership, research and innovation,
small or large business and government institutions.

In order to be considered for an Emerald Award the individual or initiative

Where appropriate, judging will acknowledge efforts that reflect
collaborative, team- or partnership-based approaches that have contributed
to the success of the nomination.
