The awards are aimed at recognizing and rewarding the hotels that have achieved enhanced environmental performance through implementation of energy, water and waste management measures to incentivize more hotels to join the project and encourage implementation of such practices in the tourist hotel industry in Sri Lanka.

There were awards for the overall Best Green hotel (both large and SME categories), Water Conservation, Energy Conservation, and Waste Management Champions (both large and SME categories).
