Washingtonian Mag Gives Out ‘Green Award’


Washingtonian Magazine has given its inaugural highest Green Award honor to The Tower Companies for "being green-building pioneers and fierce proponents of sustainable design and construction." The building was also cited for being "one of the nation's largest buyers of green power." Tower Companies won in the category of Corporate Leader in Green Building. The Washingtonian Green Awards, the first for this publication, are "celebrating Washingtonians who preserve and protect the environment through education, by promoting green building, and by teaching the importance of living green."

Other recipients of the Washingtonian Green Awards included Bob Nixon, founder, Earth Conservation Corps; Flo Stone, founder, Environmental Film Festival; and Patrick E. Noonan, founder & chair emeritus, The Conservation Fund.

The brainchild of Washington Business Journal reporters (who also judged the awards), the Corporate Leader in Green Building honor is designed  "...to single out companies for whom green has never been a fad, but rather a longstanding principle that reflects their values and actions," says publisher Alex Orfinger.
