P!nk isn’t the only celebrity who enjoys raising a glass. On Saturday, October 19, Ian Somerhalder took to Instagram to toast to a very special occasion.

“Congratulations BILL!!!” wrote the Vampire Diaries star. “Cheers to you - Huge congrats to @billmckibben on his @green4ema award at the #2013EMAs!!”

Bill McKibben, an author who has written extensively on the impact of global warming, was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at Saturday’s event. The Environmental Media Association also recognized Hayden Panettiere with the EMA Futures Awards and Matt Damon for his Ongoing Commitment.

With his own foundation that seeks to create awareness about global conservation and green energy development, we have to admit we were a bit surprised that Ian wasn’t on hand for the event himself. Of course, that crazy Vampire Diaries schedule keeps him pretty busy in Atlanta, so props to him for even finding time to tune in live for the show online!

If there’s one thing we love about Ian, it’s his dedication — to his work, to his friends, and his cause. It’s almost like the guy gets better with age. (Just like that wine.)
