PRLog (Press Release) - Dec. 10, 2013 - SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- The Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce Environmental Affairs Committee is now accepting nominations for the 19th Annual Sustainable Quality Award Program. Awardees will be formally honored during a special luncheon award presentation scheduled for April 30, 2014 at Le Meridien Delfina Hotel in Santa Monica.

Each year the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce, the City of Santa Monica, and Sustainable Works come together to identify and recognize Santa Monica businesses that have successfully incorporated sustainable practices into their operations.

The SQA Grand Prize will be awarded for combined excellence in three areas: Economic Development, Social Responsibility, and Stewardship of the Natural Environment.  In addition, excellence awards will honor businesses with outstanding achievements in one of the three focus areas. By recognizing these achievements, the Santa Monica Chamber Environmental Affairs Committee looks to educate and inspire local businesses to adopt sustainable practices and support Santa Monica as a sustainable community providing residents and visitors with a strong economy and healthy environment.
