The Environmental Media Association said Timberlake will receive its Futures Award, which represents future environmental leaders in entertainment.
According to the group, Timberlake's attempts to reduce his carbon footprint during his tours, his advocacy for environmental issues and his eco-friendly golf course outside of Memphis, Tenn. has earned him the accolade.
EMA President Debbie Levin called Timberlake "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 Oct. 15 in Burbank.
