The Sustany Foundation and the University of Tampa Center for Ethics are proud to present the annual Sustainable Business Awards Wednesday, June 7, at the University of Tampa’s Vaughn Center. Now in their 9th year, the Sustainable Business Awards recognize and honor for-profit businesses in the Tampa Bay Area that engage in practices that increase economic opportunities and improve the environment and community.
Businesses will be recognized for contributions in building a sustainable economy in Tampa Bay, while embracing the “Triple Bottom Line” — advancing the interests of People, Planet & Profit through innovative practices, products and services. A team of University of Tampa students, under the guidance of UT faculty at the Sykes College of Business, developed an evaluation process based primarily on Global Reporting Initiative guidelines. Nominated businesses were evaluated by the student team, who made Award recommendations to a Committee comprised of Sustany Foundation Board Members, University of Tampa faculty and community stakeholders.
