2020 Global Clean Environment Awards

Action for Clean Environment Honors Seven Exemplary Organizations for Environmental Leadership at the 2020 Global Clean Environment Awards Ceremony.

Action for Clean Environment (ACE) recognized seven exemplary organizations for their contributions in advancing environmental leadership in 2020 at The Plaza Hotel Seoul on June 24, 2020. This years’s award recipients included organizations from around the globe including Korea, US, China, and Myanmar. A high-ranking panel of experts selected the most outstanding green visionaries, who come from an impressively wide range of categories with diverse achievements.

Each recipient organization provided an overview of their environmental dedication during the luncheon. The award categories included Public Service, Healthcare, Business and Entertainment, with some awardees giving their acceptance speeches on video. The ceremony was sponsored in part by Hanmi Pharmaceuticals and VIG Partners.

In his laudation, the chair of awards selection committee Dr. Sang-Yup Lee (Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Kaist and Chair of the World Economic Forum Global Future Council on Biotechnology) stressed the importance of global environmental collaboration during pandemics: “In this day and age of COVID-19, the need to move towards a more sustainable way to interact with the environment is no longer a choice but every individuals’s responsibility, and I am thrilled to honor and celebrate today’s award recipients who have contributed in ways that exemplify how we can achieve this together.”

Tony Lee, Executive Director of Action for Clean Environment said “The seven organizations awarded this year have made significant strides in environmental leadership and are at the forefront of raising environmental awareness globally. We congratulate the awardees and look forward to their continued contributions in the future.”
