Secretary of the Navy Environmental Awards

The annual Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) Environmental Awards Program recognizes Navy and Marine Corps ships, installations, and people for outstanding performance in promoting environmental stewardship.  Awards are presented for accomplishments in Natural Resources Conservation, Cultural Resources Management, Environmental Quality, Sustainability, Environmental Restoration, Environmental Excellence in Weapon System Acquisition, and Environmental Planning.  By presenting awards, SECNAV recognizes organizations and people who have made significant contributions in environmental areas.


Environmental experts from the government and private sector evaluate Navy and Marine Corps nominations to determine up to one Navy winner and one Marine Corps winner for each category.

SECNAV winners will receive an award in recognition of their sustained commitment to environmental excellence.

Eligible winners at the SECNAV level of competition are submitted to compete in the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF) Environmental Awards competition.
