We would also like to applaud all participants of the 2011 Green Business Challenge. Sixty-three local businesses representing a broad range of the Loudoun business community submitted scorecards in the point-based competition designed to encourage businesses to adopt more efficient and sustainable business practices. Those practices range from the simple, such as turning off lights and computers during non-business hours, to the more complex, such as creating a sustainability plan and setting energy reduction goals.
