Tom Bowman Named Finalist for Sustainable Business Award
Tom Bowman, green business consultant and author of The Green Edge, has been named a finalist for the Sustainable Business Council’s (SBC) third annual Sustainable Business Award in the Best Public Advocate category.
SBC’s panel of four judges is made up of executives with organizations that are recognized leaders in political and environmental strategy, and regulatory policy development and advocacy. Judges will select a winner from the field of five candidates whose public advocacy work to promote sustainability has had broad impact while he or she is simultaneously engaged in Southern California’s sustainable business community. "Tom Bowman's efforts as a sustainability advocate and his work to engage more businesses in green solutions typify the level of commitment of all of our award finalists," says Laura Berland-Shane, SBC Co-founding Board of Directors Member and Event Chair of the SBC Industry Achievement Awards.
Bowman says it is an honor to be named as a finalist in a field of standout sustainability advocates. “Public engagement in climate response must include making businesses more sustainable. In fact, the ripple effect of going green at work will galvanize the public around a collective goal and drive real change,” says Bowman.
The award winner will be announced on April 22nd at the SBC's Industry Achievement Awards in Santa Monica. For more information about the awards, go to www.sustainablebc.org.
