The Sustainable Princeton Leadership Awards are sponsored by Sustainable Princeton with support from the Princeton Environmental Commission.  Each year a call for nominations is issued to help us identify Princeton’s best, brightest and greenest businesses, residents, teachers, school administrators, government employees, religious leaders and any others that are leading the way toward a sustainable Princeton.  A volunteer review team comprised of representatives from each of these areas chooses the finalists.

Sustainable Princeton’s goals for the town of Princeton are to reduce energy use from fossil fuels by 20 percent by the year 2020 and to reduce waste by 50 percent by 2016.  For more information visit
