Rose McKinney-James, Managing Principal of Energy Works, LLC recognized as a VERGE Vanguard Award
"It's a huge thrill to be recognized by GreenBiz Group, especially the opportunity to join a special group of professionals demonstrating leadership in the promotion of renewable energy policies that positively impact the communities they serve," said McKinney-James, former energy regulator for the Nevada Public Utilities Commission.
The 20 individuals and organizations being recognized with the VERGE Vanguard Award hail from large corporations reinventing business as usual, startups rewriting the "rules" and organizations shattering silos to foster a more inclusive and sustainable future.
"The transition to a sustainable and low-carbon economy won't happen without visionaries and leaders," said Joel Makower, chairman and executive editor at GreenBiz Group. "The VERGE Vanguard award honors those who are showing the way, setting the path for companies, cities and all of us to follow. We are pleased to honor this year's cohort as exemplars of the important and inspiring change we all want to see in the world.
A dozen of this year's roster work for some of the world's largest companies, including Apple, Google, Tesla, Adidas, UPS, C&A and more.
