Justin Timberlake will be honored with the Environmental Media Association’s Futures Award, given annually to the next generation of environmental leaders in the entertainment world.
The actor-singer was singled out for developing an eco-friendly golf course outside of Memphis, using his celebrity to promote environmental issues, and his attempts to create a carbon neutral footprint while on tour.
