City Recognizes 2020 Environmental Awards Recipients

The City of Burnaby is pleased to announce the winners of the 2020 Environmental Awards, recognizing individuals and community groups that have made significant contributions to the sustainability of Burnaby’s environment.

“The recipients of Burnaby’s Environmental Awards have dedicated themselves to protecting and enhancing our natural spaces, wildlife and environment,” said Mayor Mike Hurley. “They are role models in our community and we greatly appreciate their efforts.”

Environmental Awards recognize large-scale achievements that have a broad community impact. Recipients for 2020 include:

  • Elmer Rudolph, in the category of Community Stewardship, for his outstanding commitment to environmental protection and rehabilitation of the Brunette River.
  • HUB Cycling Burnaby Committee, in the category of Green Choices, for their outstanding advocacy and support of active transportation and safe cycling infrastructure in Burnaby.

Environmental Stars recognize achievements of a smaller or individual scale that may serve to catalyze larger initiatives and inspire others. Recipients for 2020 include:

  • Azzam Haq of the Burnaby Youth Sustainability Network (BYSN), in the category of Youth, for leading the Burnaby South Green Team in creating a school-wide gardening program and re-instating a soft plastics collection program.
  • Emily Ng of the Burnaby Youth Sustainability Network (BYSN), in the category of Youth, for her commitment to protecting local species and fostering awareness of sustainable consumption and waste reduction.
