Sustainable Seattle announced the winners of their Sustainability Leadership Awards – known as the "Sustainability Oscars" – at their annual dinner Friday night at the Swedish Cultural Center. The evening's top prize, the Sustainability Hero Award, went to Sophorn Sim, an environmental educator working with immigrant residents and fishermen in the Duwamish Valley.
Business, organization, and individual award winners in six categories were recognized at the event for their efforts to make the greater Seattle region a more sustainable, resilient and equitable place to live.
"It was such an inspiration to hear everyone's stories and see the amazing advances our region is making for our future," said Sustainable Seattle's Executive Director BJ Cummings. "It was also important to celebrate the people and organizations doing this work, especially now, when we need amplify the voices of our sustainability leaders."
