The Edmund G. “Pat” Brown Award

Established on CCEEB’s 20th anniversary and named on behalf of our founding chairman, the Edmund G. “Pat” Brown Award recognizes an individual or organization whose activities exemplify the principles of environmental and economic balance. The annual Pat Brown Award plays a meaningful role in motivating people and organizations to continue their efforts to advance balanced solutions.

Can we have economic growth and a better environment? We can and we must. For, in reality, we cannot divide and segregate economic and environmental issues. They are inextricably tied together and the decisions we make about one affects the other.

Governor Pat Brown, 1973 (on the founding of CCEEB)
