 SAH was recognized in the 2013 Hawaii Green Events Award Ceremony 

Aloha Members, Friends, and Colleagues 

The Sustainability Association of Hawaii was recognized on April 26th, 2013 at the Hawaii Green Business Award Ceremony in the events category for the participation in the 2012 Build and Buy Green Conference  effort to go green. 
From the official press release: "As a 2013 Green Event honoree, [...] the Sustainability Association of Hawaii, [...] actively applied the phrase “lead by example” to the planning and design of the 2012 Hawaii Build and Buy Green Conference. In order to accomplish the goals of reducing the overall environmental impact of the Conference, several sustainable measures were implemented into the framework of the Conference that covered everything from the food that was provided to the type and amount of paper that was used. The menu included local ingredients wherever possible as well as vegan/gluten-free options and fish selected from sustainable fish supplies.  Waste was reduced by tracking attendance and tailoring food according to the final count as well as by the use of Biodegradable Product Institute certified compostable cups, containers, and tableware. Furthermore, 16% of the total waste was diverted through recycling measures that were implemented over the course of the event."
