Local Businesses To Compete In 5th Annual Green Games May 12

NEW ORLEANS – The Green Games Awards Gala is New Orleans' sustainability event of the year.

         On Thursday, May 12, 2016, from 7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m., city business leaders will take over the Eiffel Society, 2040 St. Charles Ave., for a glamorous academy awards-like program honoring awardees, with networking, a silent auction, local food and live entertainment by Tank & the Bangas and local comedians.

         In the last five years, LifeCity has presented more than 100 awards for sustainable achievements and leadership, empowering changemakers to take on the next steps in their sustainability missions. At the forefront of social innovation, the Green Games Gala celebrates the progress local businesses have made in sustainability; inspiring other New Orleans’ industries to do the same as sustainability becomes the “norm” and not the exception for business success.

         This year, more than 150 businesses will compete for Sustainability Achievement awards. Business leaders in seven categories will take home honors such as “Sustainability Leadership,” “Most Improved” and “People’s Choice.”

         LifeCity, LLC will host New Orleans’ Sustainability Event of the Year in partnership with the New Orleans Chamber of Commerce, the Greater New Orleans Foundation, Biz New Orleans, Stay Local, Natural Awakenings Magazine and the City of New Orleans Resilience Office.

Taylor Center for Social Innovation and Design Thinking, Tulane University, Postlethwaite & Netterville, The Vivelan Group and Valero Energy Foundation.

         LifeCity is a membership-based organization that makes social and environmental impact profitable for businesses. It seeks to ensure that businesses that want to go green have the support to do so, and businesses that claim to be green are truly implementing socially and environmentally responsible practices.
