Sustainable Business Oregon’s Innovation in Sustainability Awards highlight the most brilliant and innovative approaches to organizational sustainability in Oregon. Now in its fifth year, the awards honor breakthrough ideas and technologies across seven primary focus areas: energy, equity, food, natural environment, transportation, waste and water.
Nomination and judging for the Innovation in Sustainability Awards are supported by Sustainability at Work, a program from the City of Portland, together with Metro, the Energy Trust of Oregon and Pacific Power.
Nominate a business, advocacy group or individual from Oregon or S.W. Washington for their sustainable business work: http://www.bizjournals.com/portland/nomination/55201.
Nominations close on September 27.
Awards will be flexible; one recipient can be recognized for innovation across multiple focus areas. Nominees are asked to share measurable results for each area they apply in. Sustainability at Work partners will have an opportunity to review nominations for achievements in their focus area and provide their recommendations to SBO for the award, and will be recognized at the event for contributing their time and expertise to the process.
