At its Annual Workplace Excellence Award Event on June 19, 2008, the AWE presented the first EcoLeadership Award, recognizing visionary employers that are paving the way for environmentally sustainable workplaces. Eco-friendly policies and practices attract talent, increase productivity, reduce costs, improve employee morale and loyalty, and project a strong public image.

To be considered for the EcoLeadership award, businesses must complete a comprehensive and rigorous assessment process led by an Independent Review Panel of academics and business professionals.

Award-winning employers demonstrate commitment to environmental sustainability in the following categories:
Waste Minimization: reducing the impact of waste in all business and production processes (i.e. recycling, equipment purchasing, printing)
Water Conservation: reduction or re-use (i.e. faucet aerators, water efficient landscaping)
Pollution Prevention: elimination of toxic and hazardous substances from the workplace and use of environmentally conscious products (i.e. non-toxic cleaning products, biodegradable soap)
Environmentally-Conscious Travel: reduce or offset travel-related emissions (i.e. transportation incentives, carpooling board, electric, hybrid, or fuel-cell car rentals)
Energy Efficiency: reduce energy use, streamline operations and contribute to healthier environment (i.e. alternative energy use, carbon offsets)
