2020 Environmental Stewardship Awards

Home » 2020 Environmental Stewardship Awards

Partners for Environmental Progress (PEP) recognized the contributions of area businesses and organizations at the 20th annual Membership Meeting and Environmental Awards presentation. All awards were presented in a virtual format at PEP’s Annual Membership Meeting and Environmental Awards Presentation during a virtual event on September 24, 2020.

Since 2005, the PEP Board of Directors has presented the PEP Environmental Stewardship Awards to recognize PEP members whose work has made a significant and positive contribution to the Gulf Coast region in three crucial areas: economic growth, environmental health and social responsibility. 

This year, the seven winning projects represented a diversity of initiatives. The goal of our annual awards is to inspire more businesses to follow the example of these seven leaders. These companies are choosing to be more environmentally conscious and responsible.

Please join us in congratulating our 2020 award recipients for their environmental stewardship along our Gulf Coast!

Thank you to our 2020 Award Sponsor!
