Metro Atlanta Chamber Hosts the 2017 Atlanta E3 Awards

The Metro Atlanta Chamber Public Policy team is eagerly awaiting the fifth annual Atlanta E3 Awards, which will be held on October 4, 2017 at the Marriot Marquis. This year the Metro Atlanta Chamber received a record number of applicants, which made judging incredibly difficult. This year’s 21 finalists (listed below) are leading their industries by innovating in the nexus of sustainability and business.

Metro Atlanta Chamber Vice President of Infrastructure and Government Affairs, Dave Williams, was impressed by this year’s applicants. “Sustainability is a huge driver in economic development,” said Williams.  “Metro Atlanta companies are dedicating their talent and resources toward green initiatives to better our community and improve their bottom lines. That is evident through the great work of these 21 finalists.”
