WASHINGTON'S LEADING BUSINESS MAGAZINE

2013 Green Washington Awards

Members of the Washington Green 50 know that being ‘green’ and ‘in the black’ aren’t mutually exclusive.
Nick Horton |   November 2013   |  FROM THE PRINT EDITION

Two years ago, Seattle Business magazine’s popular Green Washington Awards spawned the Washington Green 50 list—a compilation of the 50 companies and organizations in Washington state considered to be among the most environmentally aware and actively committed to sustainable business practices. It was a way of expanding our recognition of green-minded companies beyond the various category winners we have been honoring with the Green Washington Awards since 2009. The category winners profiled on the pages that follow are the best of the best, according to our panel of judges (page 38). But all members of the Washington Green 50 (page 45) embody the principles that the Green Washington Awards celebrate — an abiding commitment to attaining and perpetuating sustainable commerce. Congratulations to this year’s Washington Green 50!
