It may not be easy being green, but that’s not stopping legions of local businesses from trying to leave a smaller ecological footprint.
Business Press staffers sifted through more than 50 nominations to choose the nine winners in our latest annual installment of our Green Awards.
The depth and variety of choices proved once again that green-based industries play a vital role not just in helping the environment, but also in diversifying the local economy.
From the company that transforms Champagne bottles into glasses to the megaresort operator that goes all out to get employees on board with green practices, the honorees show how the Las Vegas Valley is a hotbed of green-related creativity.
And from one of the country’s largest solar arrays to a small business that found a way to go zero energy, they prove Southern Nevada still has its place on the cutting edge of green power.
Once again the gaming industry is proving to be a leader in environmental sustainability.
Two American Gaming Association – AGA – members, MGM Resorts International and Las Vegas Sands both were honored by the Las Vegas Business Press as two of Southern Nevada’s most eco-friendly companies.
