The 2023 Sustainable CT
Awards Celebration - thank you!


Thanks to everyone who made our 2023 Awards Celebration such a great success! It was a genuine pleasure to catch up with our friends, partners, funders, supporters, and, of course, all the Sustainable CT certified towns and Climate Leaders.

Congratulations once again to our 2023 certified towns: GOLD - New Haven; SILVER - Bristol, Chester, Hamden, Middletown, and Old Saybrook; and BRONZE - Bolton, Branford, Clinton, Granby, Marlborough, Montville, Stonington, Trumbull, Winchester, and Windham. And to this year's Climate Leaders as well: Guilford, Hartford, Litchfield, Manchester, New Haven, and Portland.

We announced the City of New Haven as the first recipient of Gold certification. The city earned over 1,000 points towards certification and was nominated for 18 “success story” awards. These success stories include the creation of New Haven’s Cultural Equity Plan and the Homeless Navigation Hub Continuum.

We were thrilled to be joined by Connecticut Public in celebration of the many Sustainable CT Community Match Fund projects that are doing so much to improve the quality of life in our communities. Be sure to watch the latest installment of "Re:Source:Ful" to learn more - available now at CPTV.

Our special thanks and appreciation go out to our municipal host, the Town of Winchester (a newly Bronze-certified community), and to the fabulous venue, the American Mural Project - a cultural treasure.

Thanks as well to our generous event sponsor, Electriq Power, and to those companies and organizations that provided additional support: Connecticut Green BankEnergy SourceCasella Waste Systems, and Thought Partner Solutions.

Because of all of you, the 2023 Sustainable CT Awards Celebration was a thoroughly enjoyable event, and we look forward to making Connecticut even better in 2024! Photos of the event are now avaible!
