GoGreen Awards

What are the go green awards?

"The GoGreen Award is an excellent way of recognizing Cambridge businesses for their efforts to preserve the environment and quality of life in Cambridge. Businesses in Cambridge have always been active in promoting and implementing environmental programs, and we want to make sure that their efforts are appreciated and applauded." - Robert W. Healy, City Manager

In 2013, the Go Green Awards are being revamped! We are excited to be able to roll out the new program later on this summer.
