Sustainability Collaboration Award

For the first time, the Intermountain Sustainability Summit (ISS) community is presenting the ISS Sustainability Collaboration Award for sustainability professionals implementing partnerships to amplify their influence and impact. Nominate those in our community who have joined efforts to bring greater sustainability practices and equitable solutions to the region in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Collaborations can be across organizations, sectors, political lines, or with colleagues.  

The ISS community recognizes the importance of collaborative partnerships. Over the last 14 years we’ve witnessed the power of those working together to advance sustainability and climate solutions at increasing scales. This year’s ISS theme, Connect & Amplify Impact, highlights these successes, and fosters further collaborative efforts.
