Not to be confused with Defenders of the Earth.

The United Nations Environment Programme established Champions of the Earth in 2004 as an annual awards programme to recognize outstanding environmental leaders at a policy level. Six awards are given out each year to a Laureate representing different geographical regions with one additional special prize.

The Champions of the Earth are invited to accept their award at an international ceremony, which publicizes and encourages the worldwide replication of the achievements of the Champions. This special event was held in Singapore in 2006 and 2007.

This awards programme is a successor to UNEP's Global 500 Roll of Honour.
