For the City of Eugene, sustainability means considering and balancing all three aspects of the triple bottom line – people, planet and prosperity – to address the community’s present needs without compromising future generations. The Bold Steps award recognizes businesses that embody this vision and are taking bold steps in each area of the triple bottom line.

Winning businesses receive marketing assistance including print ads and a professionally produced video, as well as recognition from the Mayor and community members at the annual State of the City event. 

To qualify for consideration for the Bold Steps award, businesses must be certified through the rethink program which offers businesses free, on-site consultation to reduce waste and save money.
