Brandon Green Business Award

October 13, 2022

Brandon, MB – The City of Brandon Environmental Initiatives Section and the Brandon Environment Committee is excited to introduce a new Brandon Green Business Award. The purpose of the Brandon Green Business Award is to recognize and celebrate businesses that have taken the initiative to employ efforts in sustainability, water conservation, and waste diversion efforts. 


Initiatives can be something that the business has already been doing, or this could be the opportunity to plan to adopt a measure. The initiative must not be mandated due to a federal, provincial, or municipal law, by-law, or other body of rules. 

Award categories include: 

  • Small business (less than 100 employees) 

  • Large business (more than 100 employees)  

  • Not-for-profit organizations 

Green initiative ideas include:   

  • Becoming a fair-trade workplace or retailer  

  • Switching to energy efficient bulbs or appliances where applicable  

  • Creative ways to reuse/recycle goods, products, materials etc. 

  • Encourage or implement a green commuting strategy 

  • Water conservation  

The award criteria are by no means limited to the options above. Businesses are strongly encouraged to produce their own ideas. 

The application deadline is Monday, November 14, 2022. Applications will be reviewed by a committee to ensure eligibility. Eligible businesses will be given a certificate to proudly display and will be entered to win a fair-trade coffee break, compliments of Brandon Environment Committee and the City of Brandon.  

Participant’s accomplishments will also be celebrated on the City’s social media platforms with a team photo, a write up of their initiative and what they achieved with their efforts.
