Each year the City of Davis recognizes the environmental contributions of an individual/group, a business, and a non–profit or other organization.

In 2011, the previous "Individual" category was expanded to "Individual or Group" and the "Environmental Legacy" category was added to recognize events, programs, or milestones that have made a significant difference in Davis’ environmental quality of life over the course of our 100-year history.
In 2018, the "Special Recognition" category was created as part of the "Non-profit" category to allow recognition of programs that do not fit within another category.
In 2019, the previous "Non-Profit" category was expanded to "Non-profit Organizations, Agencies, Schools, and other community-based organizations".
