EarthCraft Sustainable Preservation (ECSP), a partnership between Southface and The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation, has been selected as a finalist in the Built Environment category for the 2017 Atlanta E3 Awards.

The E3 Awards celebrate the companies, organizations and people who deserve recognition for their work in sustainable business practices.

ECSP revitalizes underused or vacant buildings, improves the quality of life for community residents, stimulates the local economy and increases revenues for municipalities.

“Environmentally friendly and sustainable business practices are critical to our future, not just for metro Atlanta, but also for metro regions globally,” said Hala Moddelmog, president and CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber. “We are grateful for all of the companies that are recognized as E3 Award finalists. Their forward-thinking impact in keeping our region engaged in conservation is a great benefit to our ongoing quality of life.”

The awards recognize the work being done to both grow economic bottom lines while conserving natural resources in our region. By fostering collaboration and problem solving, many Atlanta companies are making a difference.

Winners in each category will be announced during a special event at the Marriott Marquis, Wednesday, October 4, 2017.
