September 8, 2020 — We’re thrilled to announce that Troy is a 2020 Business Intelligence Group Sustainability award winner for the “Sustainability Hero of the Year” category.

The most precious asset all businesses share is our Earth. The efforts individuals and businesses make to sustain this vital resource is not only necessary, but it also makes good business sense. Seeking recognition for your Earth-friendly work is also smart business. We applaud you for taking the first step in setting your business apart from your competitors.

The Sustainability Awards program provides the opportunity for your organization to receive global recognition by a panel of volunteer judges who themselves are leaders and experts in business.

The Sustainability Awards will honor those who have made sustainability an integral part of their business practice. We welcome nominations from businesses of all sizes, locations and maturity. We offer increased exposure for the exemplary accomplishments of leaders, initiatives and organizations working to reduce the impact of their business on our environment.

The 2020 Sustainability Award winners are:

Sustainability Hero of the Year (Executive)
