The greatest enemy of progress is complacency. The battle for a better planet is only just beginning.
Sure, more people talk about it than ever before. Sure, more people than ever before translate those words into actions. But what we witness is just the smallest and most modest of starts.
What we see is the first skirmishes in a battle that will be waged forever. We cannot afford people to think, for the briefest of moments, that all is in hand. It isn’t. It is up to all of us to continue to make as much noise as possible to keep this crucial issue at the forefront of everyone’s consciousness and conscience.
That’s where we at The ECHO feel we have a huge part to play. We are the number one news medium on Merseyside. In print, online, on mobile, our audience is growing by the day. So this message will get louder and louder and these awards will become more and more significant. The audience grows but the goals remain the same:
- To RECOGNISE the best environmental businesses, schools, community projects and individuals
- To THANK those who are making a difference, be they winners or nominees
- To FEATURE the green heroes in the Liverpool ECHO in print and online
- To CELEBRATE their magnificent achievements at our fantastic Awards Night.
Join the battle. Make a noise.

We are proud to operate in the City Region and it’s important to us that we are part of it, protect it and contribute to it.
So we are delighted, for the third year running, to be the Executive Sponsor of these awards, recognising the fantastic contribution the people of Merseyside make towards a healthier, greener, connected region.
The Liverpool Echo Environment Awards is a key event and is your opportunity to showcase all the excellent work you have been doing over the past year. It’s time to shout out about it!
Merseyrail itself has been recognised in 2018 for our environment and community successes being awarded the Sustainable Development Award at the prestigious National Rail Awards.
The judges commended Merseyrail as an excellent example of how a train operator can become an integral part of the community it serves and the mutual benefits that can be achieved through commitment to sustainable business practices.
