EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ ─ In an effort to raise environmental awareness throughout East Brunswick, the township’s Green Team is sponsoring the first annual “Green Business Recognition Award.” The inaugural Green Business Recognition Award is awarded to the Brunswick Square Mall for installing 17 charging stations for electric vehicles.
The award recognizes a business that improves or protects the environment and furthers the township’s sustainability goals. Examples of actions include non-mandatory recycling, green stormwater management, alternative energy usage, green building technology, conservation, education and other green initiatives.
Ron Lichtenberger, General Manager of the Brunswick Square Mall, will accept the award and be recognized by the East Brunswick Township Council on Monday, June 10, 2019 at 8pm in the Court Room. Besides being a sustainable business leader, the Brunswick Square Mall is also a member of the East Brunswick Regional Chamber of Commerce.
“It’s exciting to see how local businesses are going green and investing in sustainable actions that advance the township’s environmental stewardship,” stated Economic Development Officer Amy Denholtz Lewandowski. “Installing 17 electric vehicle charging stations is a notable accomplishment. The township and business community are fortunate that the Brunswick Square Mall is an environmental business leader and role model.”
Future award nominations may be made by completing a form available on the Township’s website, and at the East Brunswick Municipal Building Department of Planning & Engineering, 1 Civic Center, East Brunswick, NJ 08816. Multiple businesses may receive a Green Recognition certificate and one business each year will be honored with the Green Business Recognition Award.
