It is always great to see organizations that are taking action to become more environmentally sustainable be acknowledged. There are many awards that have been created over the last few years to recognize these organizations. In the Washington DC area, the Washington Business Journal, SmartCEO magazine, and the DC Mayor’s office are examples of organizations that have created such recognition opportunities.
The Washington Business Journal’s Greater Washington Green Business Awards was held in October to recognize companies as well as educate them. To see some tips from the event as well as a the winners, click here.
The SmartCEO EcoCEO award was held this past November. We wanted to congratulate four of our clients, who won in their respective categories. These are:
- Goodwill Industries International
- Washington Gas
- Perfect Settings
The Mayor’s Environmental Excellence Awards was held in February and is coming around again soon. Since we are at it, we would also like to congratulate Busboys and Poets, our first client (in 2006), for winning the award in their category for 2010.
