Green jobs are a reality, and now is the time to honor the innovative companies that are creating them.

On November 10 in New York, we celebrated the 2011 Green Jobs Award winning companies from across the country. These stellar firms are contributing to the environment and the economy and are leaders in green job creation. Together the winners employ more than 2,500 individuals and their annual revenues range from $3 million to more than $25 million.

The Green Jobs Award Program
The Green Jobs Award program celebrates businesses that are making valuable contributions to both the economy and the environment. Private companies based in the US with at least $500,000 in revenue and 10 employees, and with a business model that preserves or enhances environmental quality are eligible. Applicants are judged on their environmental contribution, quality of their jobs and benefits, the diversity of employment opportunities, and their level of community engagement. Check back in late spring 2012 to find out more details on the Green Jobs Award program.
