Apply for the Greening Award Initiative!


There’s still time to apply for the Greening Award Initiative, a joint project developed by EMSA, together with the European Fisheries Control Agency (EFCA), and the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex).

The Greening Award Initiative celebrates the sustainability actions that are carried out and developed across more than 300 authorities that make up the European Coast Guard community, and has been developed in the context of European cooperation on coast guard functions.

The Initiative recognises projects and activities developed by authorities carrying out coast guard functions which empower a green transition, contribute to a more sustainable future, and which directly or indirectly support the goals of the European Green Deal.

Announced in the framework of the Annual European Coast Guard Event held in Lisbon in 2023, the Greening Award Initiative is open to any entity or institution executing Coast Guard Functions within the European Union, Norway, and Iceland.

With three categories, the Initiative is aimed at small and large projects alike. The application process is quick and simple and can be completed entirely online.

Find out more about the Greening Award Initiative including information on the Award categories, how to apply, and the deadline for applications.
