Bold Steps Award Program


Bold-StepsRE-think for Business

Congratulations to the 2018 Bold Steps Award Winner: George Rode Repair Shops!

The Bold Steps Award recognizes Eugene-based sustainable businesses and represents a partnership between The City of Eugene, Eugene Mayor Lucy Vinis, and BRING’s rethink business program. Updated from a once semi-monthly award to an annual award, the level of competition has increased as well as the visibility of the winner. Read the inspirational story about 2018's Bold Steps Winner, George Rode Repair Shops.

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 rethink program which offers businesses free, on-site consultation to reduce waste and save money. Preview an example of the Bold Steps Award application.

Congratulations to the finalists for the 2018 Award: Summit Bank, and Good Clean Love!
