Loudoun County Chamber Announces 2013
Loudoun Green Business Awards Winners
Green Business Winners are Honored at Briar Patch Bed & Breakfast
Lansdowne, VA - The Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce today announced the winners and finalists of the 2013 Loudoun Green Business Challenge.
These top performing Loudoun County businesses were honored at the annual “Loudoun Green Gala,” at the Briar Patch Bed & Breakfast in Middleburg, on Wednesday October 30th.

“All of the Loudoun businesses who accepted the Green Business Challenge should be applauded for demonstrating their commitment to environmental sustainability in ways that improving their operations, increase efficiencies generate greater value for their bottom line,” said Tony Howard, Chamber President & CEO.
The number of Loudoun businesses that are committed to environmental sustainability and are participating in the Green Business Challenge has grown every year since the Green Business Challenge was launched in 2009. This year’s winners were chosen from 64 businesses that submitted scorecards, a record number.
On the scorecard, businesses selected the actions they took to conserve energy and use alternative energy, green their transportation practices, conserve water, reduce waste and increase recycling, help spread sustainability to their employees’ everyday lives and the community, and innovate.
“The Challenge is more than a scorecard or an awards ceremony. Helping businesses learn techniques for becoming more sustainable and helping businesses that are part of the Challenge grow are both important elements of the Loudoun Green Business Challenge,” said Lynne Kaye, of Unison Advisory Group.
Kaye, along with Carol Kearney of Momentum Realty, LLC chair the committee. The Green Business Committee was formed through a joint effort with the Loudoun County Government, but in 2012 the Challenge was turned over to the Loudoun Chamber to take the lead.
The Green Business Challenge sponsors include The National Conference Center, Dominion, Loudoun County Department of Transportation and Capital Infrastructure, REHAU, Loudoun County Department of Economic Development, NOVA Medical and Urgent Care Center, and Loudoun Water.
