How would you like to be New Jersey's Sustainable Business of the Year?

Each year the New Jersey Small Business Development Centers honors a member of the New Jersey Sustainable Business Registry or a NJSBDC Sustainability Practices client with the distinction of being the "Sustainable Business of the Year". The winner will join recipients of success awards from each NJSBDC regional center and specialty practice for recognition at NJSBDC's annual success awards event. In addition to honor and distinction itself, awardees receive extensive press coverage and publicity, and the opportunity to network with hundreds of successful business owners, distinguished sponsors, and state legislators.

Businesses eligible for "Sustainable Business of the Year" will have achieved significant results in two or more of the following areas:

  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions
  • Reducing Toxic and Hazardous Materials
  • Conserving water, other natural resources, and using alternative energy sources
  • Promoting business efficiencies
  • Institutionalizing and integrating pollution prevention practices

Nominations will be made by NJSBDC Sustainability consultants, in conjunction with Regional Center directors; awards will be determined in accordance with published criteria established by NJDEP and NJSB program management.
