Smart Community Education and Promotion of Progress
From 2012-2015 this countywide awards program showcased the best examples of commercial energy efficiency, waste reduction, water conservation and green purchasing. To be sustainable is to balance economic, environmental and social concerns, and to think about how actions taken today will affect future generations. This awards program continues to reveal best sustainable business practices going on within our community and will showcase the winners for others to emulate.
