SAS wins 2012 NCTA Environmental Steward Award
SAS honored for excellence and innovation at North Carolina Technology Association 21 Awards
The NCTA 21 Awards is North Carolina's only statewide technology awards program, recognizing companies and individuals who have characterized excellence, innovation and leadership in 21 categories. SAS earned the Environmental Steward award for being a technology company that has gone above and beyond to implement environmentally conscious and sustainable practices.
"Projects like our solar farm and award-winning LEED-certified buildings demonstrate a fundamental shift in the value placed on energy efficiency, intelligent power sourcing and end-user consumption. We are committed to minimizing the environmental impact of our business," said Jerry Williams, SAS Environmental Sustainability Program Manager, who accepted the award on behalf of SAS.
"SAS has distinguished itself as one of the state's technology leaders, and we are proud to recognize them as a winner of the Environmental Steward award," said Brooks Raiford, NCTA president and CEO.
The award was announced in November at the prestigious NCTA 21 Awards. The annual gala was held at the Sheraton Imperial in Durham, NC, and was attended by nearly 800 business leaders from across the state.
