On July 29, 2019, Scheller College of Business Professor Beril Toktay was selected as a finalist for the 2019 Atlanta E3 Awards in the “Impact” category. Entering its seventh year, the Atlanta E3 Awards, which are presented by the Metro Atlanta Chamber (MAC), celebrate the companies, organizations and people whose work innovates at the intersection of sustainability and commerce. To date, the awards have recognized 37 recipients.
Toktay was selected as a finalist on the basis of her sustainable business scholarship and for founding the Ray C. Anderson Center for Sustainable Business at the Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business. The Center empowers the leaders of tomorrow to create sustainable businesses and communities.
“We are proud, as a region, to be home to so many individuals and organizations prioritizing sustainability across sectors,” said MAC President and CEO Hala Moddelmog. “With the collaboration of our business community, we will continue to build metro Atlanta into a national model for resiliency that values collective action and boosts our quality of life.”
The awards recognize that doing the right thing by the environment is not at odds with making a profit. By fostering collaboration and problem solving, many Atlanta companies are making a positive difference.
The five award categories are: Built Environment, Clean Tech Innovation, Impact (Individual), Moving the Needle (Transportation), and Resilient Communities. The categories cover a variety of industry sectors, such as water conservation, renewable energy, recycling, and smart growth.
Winners in each category will be announced during a breakfast event at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis on September 25, 2019.
