DPZ Receives Green Award from USGBC Charlotte Chapter and Charlotte Business Journal
It's great to see our members getting well-deserved recognition for their great work:
The Charlotte Business Journal and the Charlotte Chapter of the US Green Building Council want to recognize those who are going green. The 2008 Green Awards event on April 16 will honor those in the Charlotte area who make efforts to incorporate environmentally sustainable practices into their businesses and community work. By doing so, they show others how to strengthen the environmental health of our region.
The Green Awards will recognize individuals, businesses, government leaders and entities, and nonprofit organizations in two main categories - General Awards and Green Building Awards. Within those two categories there are a total of 20 awards. Work or projects completed from January 2007 to December 2007 were considered.
A special thanks to our presenting sponsors Duke Energy and Wachovia.
