Business Environmental Success Recognized through Columbus GreenSpot
Seven Organizations Recognized
The City of Columbus’ annual GreenSpotLight awards celebration recognized three businesses for their outstanding sustainability practices.
The large, medium, and small organizations awards go to DLZ, Accurate IT and CeraNet. Members of the GreenSpot Advisory Board selected the three awardees using information provided in the businesses’ GreenSpot annual reports.
“In addition to strong, sustainable neighborhoods, we as a city want to work with our great partners in business and industry to lift up sustainability as a core priority,” Columbus Mayor Andrew J. Ginther said. “The GreenSpotLight Award winners model sustainability in their operations and practices.”
These organizations use the MyGreenSpot online tool to adopt and track their sustainability successes in water and energy conservation, waste reduction, green transportation and educational outreach.
Columbus City Councilmember Emmanuel Remy, chair of the Council Environment Committee, recognized these businesses for their success.
“Sustainability and a successful business go hand in hand. The GreenSpotLight winners are an example of what’s possible when sustainability is embraced,” Remy said.
Additionally, four organizations were recognized for completing GreenSpot’s Sustainable Business Course. This program provides mentoring and networking opportunities as the businesses go through the GreenSpot application process. The diverse group of organizations that received special recognition includes:
• Full Circle Source
• Green Luxe
• Jewish Columbus
• Wolf’s Ridge Brewery
