Mayor Thomas M. Menino Receives New England Environmental – Energy Award for Government Service from the EBC

Posted June 17, 2013 by

Mayor Thomas M. Menino was recognized by the Environmental Business Council of New England (EBC) with the Paul G. Keough Environmental – Energy Award for Government Service. The Mayor is receiving this award in recognition of the development and implementation of outstanding environmental and energy programs that make Boston one of the greenest cities in America.

“We have achieved what we have achieved in Boston only because we have all worked together,” Mayor Menino said. “Too often the sustainability agenda is viewed as being in conflict with the business agenda. In Boston we have shown that sustainability is not a commitment to duck, but a competitive advantage to demand.”

“To be recognized by the business community for environmental work speaks highly of Mayor Menino’s leadership,” said Brian Swett, Chief of Environment and Energy. “This award recognizes the Mayor’s success in partnering with the business community to address climate change while leveraging sustainability to drive economic development and job creation”

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.
