The Green Business Partnership (GBP), a program of the Business Council of Westchester in partnership with Westchester County and Green Team Spirit LLC, recently honored 8 organizations at the 9th Annual Green Business Partnership Awards at the Cambria Hotel in White Plains.
Awards were given to organizations in each of the six categories that the Green Business Partnership identifies as part of its green certification process, and one in honor of the late Charles Brown, a visionary green business leader that demonstrated a true commitment to sustainability as founder and CEO of C.W. Brown in Armonk (now LeChase Construction). The event was sponsored by Heineken, Peak Power, Suburban Carting, Westmed Medical Group and Yonkers Tennis Center.
“This year’s award winners exemplify the very best of the business community and the many benefits of investing in sustainability,” said Dani Glaser, Green Business Partnership Program Director and owner of Green Team Spirit LLC. “Not only are these organizations measuring and reducing their impact on the environment, they are saving money, increasing profits, and becoming more competitive, all while engaging employees and helping them develop sustainability skills. We’re proud to showcase these impressive accomplishments.”
Wartburg, a home health care and rehabilitative care provider in Mount Vernon, and Pelham-based Lippolis Electric, will receive the Energy Award, in recognition of their success in working together to help Wartburg significantly reduce its energy usage.
