In 2019, he received the Light of Justice Award.

Dmytro Karabchuk comments on the Light of Justice Award:

“This award acknowledges the significance of environmental protection and its rational use, not only for the present but also for the future. This is an indicator that our difficult joint work of many people in the field of ecology has been seen and heard and, I hope, will find a response in the heart of everyone who is not indifferent.”
