PG Seeking Green Grocer Nominees
Progressive Grocer is now accepting entries for its annual Green Grocers awards competition, which recognizes industry leaders from a myriad of store formats and sizes -- from natural markets to multistore chains to regional and local independents -- that are dedicated to social responsibility through green initiatives.
This marks the fourth year that PG will salute retail supermarket leaders that are blazing a green path. The winners will appear in its March 2011 issue, along with a new slate of Green Grocer Hall of Fame inductees, selections for which are based on consistent contributions to companywide eco-friendly practices.
Hall of Fame inductees will continue to be considered for subsequent Green Grocer honors for specific projects in years to come.
Single-unit or chain stores opened between Dec. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2010, are eligible. Entries may be submitted by retailers, designers, architects or other related firms involved in the project.
PG’s Green Grocer winners will be judged on a store’s sustainability scorecard in the following areas:
- Site/Land Issues
- Business Practices
- Conserving Energy/Resources
All winners will be highlighted in the March 2011 issue of Progressive Grocer and will also be honored at our annual Social Responsibility Awards event that will take place in late 2011.
Entry deadline is Jan. 7, 2011.
