ABOUT CHARLOTTE SUSTAINABILITY AWARDS EVENT
This unique event brings together sustainability leaders from a range of disciplines and sectors: for-profit, nonprofit, government, and individuals. Awards were presented to 5 winners before a crowd of 400 at the event Wednesday, April 25 at CenterStage@NoDa.
Our event isn't your average awards ceremony. Our attendees are always fun and inspirational, the food is always local, delicious, and sustainable, and our program is upbeat.
The evening was a memorable and exciting affair that honored and celebrated our most outstanding local sustainability leaders and attracted many of Greater Charlotte’s leaders, elected officials, and media.
Thanks to NC Senator Jeff Jackson for presenting our awards and Matt Olin, the founder and emcee of Creative Mornings, for being our emcee for the evening!
