Let the Green Games Year 3 Begin!

Green-Games-trophyReady. Set. Compete.

The 3rd annual Green Games are underway so set those sustainability goals and get crackin’!

For the third year, LifeCity is challenging our Members to go the extra mile to improve your impacts. With each organization, we set sustainability goals for the year and track their progress over time. In May 2014, we will hold The Green Natties: 3rd Annual Sustainable Business Awards Ceremony where we will recognize the successes and efforts of those Members that have gone above and beyond during the year. Check out the winners of this past May’s Green Natties and pictures from the event.

The Green Games are the only sustainable business competition of it’s kind in Louisiana and are hosted in partnership with Natural Awakenings Magazine and the New Orleans Chamber of Commerce. The Green Games honor those businesses that “think ahead” for our economy by protecting our environment and our community over the long-term. It is a part of a growing economic development strategy burgeoning in this City, where consumers, donors, and investors seek to not just create and sustain jobs, but ensure those jobs bring about long-term benefit for society.

Throughout the year, look out for Green Games updates in our monthly LifeCity Member Connection, as well as stories from your fellow competitors about the great sustainability improvements they have implemented. We would love to hear from you, so make sure to tell us about your Green Games successes!
