Lawn & Landscape has launched the Environmental Leadership Awards, a program that recognizes businesses representing the core values of the green industry.
 
The awards, sponsored by Case, will recognize three outstanding landscape contractors who have had a direct environment impact or successfully overcome major environmental obstacles in order to complete a project or body of work.
 
The prestigious awards increase awareness of the contributions made by landscape contractors to the industry and the benefits of being committed to the green philosophy.
 
Each winning company receives a trip for two to the Case Tomahawk Customer Center in Tomahawk, Wis., for a customized hands-on equipment training/operation experience, and a $1,000 Case gift card. 
 
This year’s premier awards presentation will be made at this year’s GIE+EXPO, held Oct. 28-30, in Louisville, Ky.
