For the City of Eugene, sustainability means considering and balancing all three aspects of the triple bottom line – people, planet and prosperity – to address the community’s present needs without compromising future generations. The Bold Steps award recognizes businesses that embody this vision and are taking bold steps in each area of the triple bottom line.
To qualify for consideration for the Bold Steps award, businesses must be certified through the RE:think program, offered through BRING Recyling. Through RE:think, businesses receive free, on-site consultation to reduce waste and save money. The Bold Steps application process is currently closed and will reopen in Summer 2017. Applications will be due mid-September, date to be determined.
