Timberlake prize for green efforts

Justin Timberlake is set to add a new prize to his trophy shelf - an award for trying to better the environment.

The Friends With Benefits star, who has been been lauded for his work in music, TV and film, will receive a Futures Award - which represents future environmental leaders in entertainment - from the Environmental Media Association.

The group praised Justin's attempts to reduce his carbon footprint during his tours, his advocacy for environmental issues and his eco-friendly golf course outside of Memphis, Tennessee.

EMA President Debbie Levin called the Cry Me A River singer "a great example of how you can lend your voice for positive change".

Others who have received the award include Edward Norton, Rosario Dawson and Maroon 5.

The Environmental Media Awards will be held in Burbank, California on October 15.
