Established in 1987, the Illinois Governor’s Sustainability Award recognizes both private and public Illinois organizations that demonstrate “outstanding and innovative sustainable techniques or technologies” and support the environmental, social, and economic health of Illinois.
Identified as an “elite group of committed leaders,” the recipients of this award contribute to the growth of Illinois’ economy by prioritizing conservation throughout operations, programs, company culture, and more.
In 2018, the award applicants collectively saved 19 million gallons of water, 39 million kilowatts of electricity, and 2.2 million tons of solid waste. Applicants are evaluated on their certifications for environmental sustainability, community and employee engagement, renewable energy initiatives, waste reduction, and more.
