About the Awards
The Sustainable San Mateo County Awards Event is the premiere sustainability event in our region. It is an inspiring evening that provides an opportunity for business, government, and nonprofit leaders to gather and pay tribute to those working to make our region truly sustainable. Attendees are treated to a networking hour, sustainable dinner and wine, entertaining live and silent auctions, and video presentations of our winners. Proceeds from the evening support SSMC’s general operating funds and programs.
Since 1999, SSMC has presented the annual Sustainability Awards program, an event that heightens community awareness about sustainability. The awards recognize San Mateo County businesses, community groups, and individuals that have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to bringing sustainable practices to their work. In addition, SSMC, San Mateo County RecycleWorks, and the San Mateo County Chapter of the American Institute of Architects present a Green Building Award. To date, over 100 Sustainability and Green Building Awards have been given among hundreds of worthy nominations. The goal is to inspire and support sustainable design in architecture and to recognize the designers, builders, and owners of green buildings in San Mateo County. More than 350 community leaders, volunteers, interested citizens, and local media representatives attend the awards event.
