Early in the same month we celebrate Earth Day, GOtham Green® recognizes the five recipients of 2017 GOtham Green Awards®. The special event takes places at New York City’s famed Friars Club in Midtown Manhattan at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 6, 2017. Click here if your wish to attend.
Gotham Green® annually recognizes those who make a difference in our communities and the world by celebrating people and organizations, both Gotham members and non-Gotham members, who work in ways big and small; for-profit and not-for-profit, to make our world a little greener. GOtham Green® provides a platform for businesses and professionals who seek to connect and promote sustainable business opportunities, practices and relationships.
I was honored to announce each winner on behalf of Gotham City Networking, Inc.® at a special meeting of GOtham Green® Thursday, December 1, 2016, also held at the Friars’ Club. Past Gotham Green Awards® winners and Gotham Green® members Joel Chadabe of Ear To The Earth Foundation and Kristina Kohl of HR Computes attended the announcement.
The recipients – Joshua Zinder Architecture + Design (JZA+D), COX Printers, Morningside Heights Housing Corporation, Earth Friendly Products and Queens Chamber of Commerce – Energy Committee – include people, businesses and organizations who (that) work on environmentally sustainable initiatives and projects.
Gotham Green Awards® recognizes three categories:
1. Green Business or Green Initiative – For businesses whose core message and products are green in concept and/or sustainable.
2. Green product, program or building - For businesses that have produced, planned or created a singular item that is green and sustainable.
3. Green/Sustainable non-profit organization - For non-profit organizations that focus on or have created a program or product that they believe contributes to the global sustainability effort.
