City Wins 'Green Government' Award

Post Date:10/16/2017 11:12 AM

Peachtree Corners has long been a good steward of the environment. For years its citizens have gathered each spring to participate in Gwinnett County’s Great Days of Service and Keep American Beautiful campaigns. And on Wednesday, Oct. 11, the City of Peachtree Corners was recognized for its efforts at the 11th Annual Environmental Address and Luncheon hosted by Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful.

Incorporated just five years ago, the city received the Green Government of the Year award for 2017 at the event that featured special guest speaker Gov. Nathan Deal. Over 600 local business and community leaders attended the address held at the Infinite Energy Center in Duluth.

“We are extremely proud to be recognized as a Green Government,” said Mayor Mike Mason. “Our community has always worked to create a greener, cleaner more livable city. Our hats are off to all of the citizens who volunteer each spring during the annual clean up to ensure we continues to preserve the natural beauty of our city.”

Listed among the criteria to be awarded the Green Government honor, the winner must: demonstrate that it has worked to create a greener, cleaner more livable Gwinnett; show continued efforts rather than conduct one-time projects; improve community and environmental practices; and improve awareness of environmental stewardship.

During the annual event Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful also presented awards for: Green Business Leader of the Year, Green Community Partner of the Year and Green Educator of the Year.
