The Blue Planet Prize was established by the Asahi Glass Foundation in 1992, the year of the Earth Summit, in the hope of healing the Earth’s fragile environment. It is an international environmental award that honors individuals or organizations who have made significant contributions to the resolution of global environmental problems. Every year, two winners are selected, and each recipient is presented with a certificate of merit, a commemorative trophy, and 50 million Japanese yen in prize money.
