It specifically recognizes the collective efforts of the event or project stakeholders, including the event owner, organizer, venue, and up to three additional suppliers (e.g., convention and visitor bureaus, technology suppliers, food and beverage suppliers), rather than individual achievements by a single supplier.

To qualify, the event or project must have taken place between January 1 and December 31 of the previous year. Applications for the 2024 award are now closed. For more details and future application guidelines, prospective applicants should seek further information as provided by the award organizers.

Judging Criteria
The award is adjudicated based on the following criteria:

Impact: Totaling 40% (Environmental impact 15%, Social impact 15%, Local economy impact 10%)

Innovation in Sustainable Practices: 25%

Collaboration with Stakeholders: 15%

Legacy: 10%

Commitment to Continuous Improvement: 5%

Commitment to Industry Education: 5%
Additionally, the global judging panel may award up to 10 bonus points for submissions that demonstrate the most significant actual impact.

Award Presentation
The award is formally presented at the IMEX Frankfurt Gala Dinner. Representatives from the winning team are expected to be present to receive the award and are responsible for their own travel and accommodations. This event provides a significant platform for recipients to showcase their commitment to sustainability in front of industry leaders, including Destination Management Companies, travel and tourism professionals, and hotel and hospitality industry stalwarts.
