Innovation in Sustainability Nominations - open now through Sept 30!
Is your organization using groundbreaking ideas, technology, business models or products to advance the definition of sustainable business? Portland Business Journal (PBJ) wants to highlight your work through the Innovation in Sustainability Awards. Nominees can be a business, local government, advocacy group or individual.
This year PBJ has opened up the awards, removing specific categories so that it’s easier to share your story through the nomination process. Award winners will honored at an evening ceremony on November 20, and will be featured in the Portland Business Journal.
