Our next Sustainability Awards will take place in Fall 2025.

Sustainability is supported by three interdependent pillars: a healthy environment, social equity, and economic vitality. We see sustainability as both an active process and an outcome to strive for.

The Sustainability Awards is a way to celebrate businesses, organizations and individuals who are helping to shape sustainable communities that meet human needs equitably, live within our planet’s ecological limits, and build a prosperous economy for all — without compromising the ability for future generations to do the same. Those being recognized are taking action, changing systems, collaborating on solutions, and supporting their peers to do the same.

Six people stand on a stage smiling. Four are holding wooden awards. A screen behind them references the Sustainability Awards.
