Congratulations to the 2017 Sustainable Business Awards winners!

The Sustainable Business Awards recognizes for-profit businesses in the Tampa Bay Area that engage in practices that not only increase economic opportunities but also improve the environment and community.

Criteria development and business evaluation is accomplished by the use of a reduced set of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRIG4) to evaluate the nominees through research, interviews and site visits.

Criteria for a Sustainable Business Award include:

  • A company that strives to be a good citizen of the Tampa Bay community through programs to improve work environment, employee benefits, community infrastructure and charitable outreach programs;
  • A company with economic performance that contributes to the overall economic health of Tampa Bay through local hiring or purchasing, product/service innovation based on customer needs, employment growth and reinvestment; and
  • A company that is engaged in contributing to the environmental health of the Tampa Bay area through programs to reduce waste, decrease energy use, increase recycling, reduce the use of toxic substances in operations and/or through LEED construction.

Nominate a deserving business and register for the event with Sustany Foundation.
