The Mayor's Bold Steps Award 


Is your business a sustainability leader?

The Bold Steps Award recognizes Eugene-based sustainable businesses and represents a partnership between The City of Eugene, Eugene Mayor Lucy Vinis, and BRING’s Rethink business program.  

About the Bold Steps Award

Winning businesses receive marketing assistance including print ads and recognition from the Mayor and community members at the annual State of the City event.  

The City works with a committee to select Bold Steps finalists from those nominated for this award and all finalists receive a professionally produced video highlighting their sustainability efforts. 

To qualify for consideration for the Bold Steps award, businesses must be certified through the Rethink program which offers businesses free, on-site consultation to reduce waste and save money.  

NEW in 2023 - Large and Small Business Awards
