For 27 years, EMA has honored the most influential green leaders in entertainment, technology, and business.

The work we do at EMA is authentically sharing the message and telling the story of sustaining our natural resources and moving us into a green economy.  Without the unity of our voices, the big polluters will continue to dominate the media with their false information.  EMA Honors showcases individuals who are consistently advocating for our planet. 

With your help, we can reach the global public, ensuring a sustainable future for our children and their children.
