Matt Damon and his fracking drama Promised Land received separate honors at Saturday’s Environmental Media Awards, held on the Warner Bros. lot.

The Environmental Media Association event honored Promised Land in the feature film category, while Damon received the EMA Ongoing Commitment Award for his environmental work. Damon is a co-founder of Water.org and has promoted access to safe water and sanitation around the world.

“[EMA] has a really far reach and a loud voice and so much can be mitigated by changing our behavior,” Damon told The Hollywood Reporter. “To get people conscious and start thinking of resource scarcity and things like that is a pretty big step [in changing the future].”

Netflix’s House of Cards won in TV drama category, while ABC’s Last Man Standing won for TV comedy. HBO’s Gasland Part II was won for documentary film. Other honorees included Hayden Panettiere (EMA Futures Award), Anna Getty (EMA Green Parent Award) and Bill McKibben (EMA Lifetime Achievement Award).

The Environmental Media Association was founded in 1989 by Cindy and Alan Horn and Lyn and Norman Lear. The nonprofit organization seeks to use the power of celebrity and the media to promote sustainable lifestyles. Industry decision-makers and talent alike, including Malin Akerman, Julie Bowen, Mehcad Brooks, Josh Henderson, Amy Smart, Darby Stanchfield and James Van Der Beek, showed support for the organization at Saturday’s event.
