North Carolina continues to top list after list for advancing our clean energy economy, moving our state closer to a future built on renewable sources. Ratepayers reap the benefits of lower utility bills. Our air and water are less exposed to harmful fossil fuels, keeping our families safer and healthier. We are creating sustainable, good-paying jobs that benefit North Carolina workers.
The transition to a cleaner, healthier North Carolina has already begun thanks to leaders in the political and business space who understand why renewable energy matters. At our 2017 Green Tie Awards, we will celebrate those innovators who have achieved both a green and clean economy.
Keynote Speaker – Governor Roy Cooper
Governor Cooper has been an advocate for clean air and water, fighting pollution in two major cases as our state’s Attorney General: requiring the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) to install and operate basic pollution control equipment and the good neighbor provision to compel the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to enforce the Clean Air Interstate Rule. He received the Catalyst Award from NCLCV at the 2009 Green Tie Awards. His fight to protect North Carolinians, especially communities disproportionately impacted by hog waste, forged the eventual Smithfield Agreement, which was a step in the right direction for ensuring justice for all when it comes to access to basic resources. Spending summers working on the farm in his hometown of Nash County, Gov. Cooper understands the important role we have in stewarding this earth for future generations. During his time in the NC House, NC Senate and Attorney General, he continued to keep the environment as a priority as he works on behalf of our state and its people. Now, as North Carolina’s Governor, he will have the opportunity to ensure what’s best for our state’s natural resources and people become priorities once again.
Senator of the Year – Senator Mike Woodard
Throughout his time in the North Carolina Senate, Senator Mike Woodard has been a stalwart supporter of pro-conservation legislation. He stood with communities first and worst impacted by coal ash contamination, including opposing the sweetheart deal for Duke Energy passed in the legislature and signed by then Governor McCrory in 2016.
Representative of the Year – Rep. Pricey Harrison
With a lifetime environmental voting record of 100, Rep. Pricey Harrison personifies what it means to be a conservation champion.
The generous contribution of corporate, individual, and nonprofit sponsors ensure the success of our annual Green Tie Awards. We are grateful for the support for their support and investment in helping to turn your environmental values turn into North Carolina priorities.
