Calling on America’s Sustainable Communities
In the past three years, nine U.S. communities have received national honors for their efforts to blend economic, environmental, and social priorities and to advance the community’s overall sustainability and success.This is what the Siemens Sustainable Community Awards is all about. The U.S. Chamber BCLC is calling on America’s communities – of all sizes – to apply for the 2011 Siemens Sustainable Community Awards. Here is the type of community we’re looking for:
Partnership: Do your community entities – government, chambers of commerce, local businesses, nonprofits, academic institutions, and/or others – work in partnership for community improvement and sustainable development?
Innovation: Has your community responded to economic challenges with innovative, sustainability-based strategies?
Business Support: Is there strong local business support for environmental stewardship initiatives in your community?
Stewardship: Has your community reduced its environmental footprint?
Results: Are the results from your community’s sustainability priorities measureable?
If you answered yes to these questions, nominate your community for the 2011 Siemens Sustainable Community Awards. Nominations are accepted until January 21, 2011. The nomination form, prize information, and additional details are online.
