 Stratospheric Ozone Protection Awards

 The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) founded the Ozone Layer Protection Awards in 1990 to recognize outstanding contributions to the protection of the Earth’s stratospheric ozone layer. Since then, 533 individuals, companies, organizations and teams from 49 countries have earned this honor. This year’s recipients have demonstrated originality and public purpose, persuasive moral and organizational leadership, and elimination of emissions of ozone-depleting substances. The winners are from Argentina, Australia, Bahrain, China, Fiji, Italy, India, Japan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Mauritius, Netherlands, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Thailand, and United States. EPA’s Ozone Layer Protection Awards are particularly prestigious because nominees compete globally against the notable accomplishments of many other potential winners, and winners are selected using previous winners as judges.




Its our distinct pleasure to inform that the Montreal Protocol Implementers Award has been presented by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to the National Ozone Unit of Sri Lanka In recognition of Extraordinary Contributions in the effective implementation of the Montreal Protocol and the global effort to protect the ozone layer at the 20th Anniversary of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that deplete the Ozone Layer 1987 - 2007 which was taken place 17th September 2007 during the evening reception which will be held in Montreal Canada.
