Each year, the Environmental Business Council of New England (EBC) recognizes companies, organizations and individuals for outstanding environmental / energy accomplishments in the promotion of a sustainable, clean environment through the EBEE Awards. The EBEE Awards are presented at the EBC’s Annual Award Celebration, held annually in June. These awards were established by the EBC to encourage companies, government agencies, non-profit organizations, and environmental professionals to serve as models for others to emulate and, in doing so, further the mission and objectives of the EBC. The 2015 Annual Meeting and EBEE Awards Celebration is scheduled for Thursday June 18, 2015 at the Newton Marriott Hotel.

Former Massachusetts Governor William F. Weld to Keynote This Year’s Celebration

Bill Weld was elected Governor of Massachusetts in 1990 just as EBC came into existence. He was reelected in 1994 with 71% of the vote. During his terms he succeeded in reducing taxes and unemployment and establishing more business-friendly policies.

At the same time Bill fostered strongly progressive environmental initiatives including the Massachusetts Rivers Protection Act and the Clean State Initiative, and emphasized open space acquisition and preservation. He mandated the use of natural gas in Commonwealth bus fleets and was an early supporter of electric cars. He also deregulated the electric utility industry in Massachusetts, giving rise to a host of new entries to the generation marketplace.

Prior to becoming Governor, Bill served for five years as the U.S. Attorney in Boston, where he successfully filed suit on behalf of the U.S. Environmental Protection Administration to compel the cleanup of Boston Harbor.

After leaving office, Bill had an international business consulting practice in New York and Washington DC.

In 2012 Bill returned to Massachusetts to join Mintz Levin and ML Strategies, where he continues to work on energy and environmental issues.
