Charlotte Sustainability Awards

Since 2012, Sustain Charlotte has honored smart growth and sustainability leadership in Greater Charlotte through this exciting annual event. Our honorees are working toward sustainability and smart growth, and by their actions, inspire others to do the same. The awards help us further our mission to inspire choices that lead to a healthy, equitable, and vibrant communities across the Charlotte metro region for generations to come.


Tickets are on sale now for the 2019 Charlotte Sustainability Awards presented by Timber Block! We hope you will join us Wednesday, April 24 at CenterStage@NoDa! This unique event brings together sustainability leaders from a range of disciplines and sectors: for-profit, nonprofit and government.

Our event isn't your average awards ceremony. Our attendees are always fun and inspirational, the dinner is always local, delicious, and sustainable, and our program is upbeat. The evening will be a memorable and exciting affair that honors and celebrates our most outstanding local sustainability leaders and attracts many of Great Charlotte's leaders, elected officials, and media.

Tickets include dinner, an awards ceremony, raffle and open bar with wine from Dover Vineyards and beer from Blue Blaze Brewing and The Unknown Brewing Co.

We are excited to announce that this year our Awards emcee will be WCNC's Brad Panovich!

Brad Panovich

We’re thrilled to have two local 13-year-olds Kate Harrison and Lucia Paulsen as our guest speakers at this year’s Charlotte Sustainability Awards. These young leaders see the threat posed by our rapidly changing climate planned and led a rally here in Charlotte as part of a global student strike for climate action, asking our elected leaders to take steps to combat climate change.
