2023 Environmental Stewardship Awards

Partners for Environmental Progress (PEP) announced their annual Environmental Stewardship Awards and Community Partner Award recipients. This year’s recipients exhibited an exemplary commitment to the protection and betterment of Coastal Alabama and represented a diversity of initiatives.

Since 2005, the PEP Board of Directors has presented 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 growthenvironmental health and social responsibility.  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. 

Each year, the PEP Board of Directors honors a Community Partner, an entity or individual that has made a lasting impact on Coastal Alabama’s sustainability and resiliency. PEP’s 2023 Community Partner award goes to Tom Hutchings, Owner, President, and Manager of EcoSolutions, Inc. Tom has over 30 years of experience providing innovative solutions to complex environmental issues along the Gulf Coast. PEP also presented a Distinguished Service Award to PEP board member Spencer Wiggins, Hancock Whitney Bank, who has served as past president and has been on the PEP Board since 2014. 

Please join us in congratulating all of our 2023 award recipients for their environmental stewardship along our Gulf Coast!
