ESAA Industry Awards


The 2017 ESAA Industry Awards is now accepting applications!

The ESAA Industry Awards is an annual awards program that recognizes member excellence in the areas of environmental innovation and community involvement. The program is open to all ESAA member organizations with the winners announced and awarded each year at the RemTech Symposium held in October. As part of the recognition process, winners will be featured in a short promotional video showcasing their companies. The videos will then be available to the winning companies following Remtech to use for their own promotional material.

Award Eligibility

All ESAA member organizations are eligible to participate in the ESAA Industry Awards program and must be a member in good standing at the time the award recipients are announced. Applicants are allowed to apply in both categories but are permitted only one entry per category.
