The Sustainable Business Council (SBC) recently welcomed Actor, Author, Entrepreneur and Eco-Activist Mariel Hemingway and her partner Bobby Williams headlining the Second Annual SBC Industry Achievement Awards held on Wednesday, April 17, 2013, from 7:00 – 9:30 p.m. PDT, at Lexus Santa Monica. The SBC, a non-profit organization which provides a professional networking and education forum for Southern California businesses and individuals working with sustainable products, services, and processes, hosts the annual awards event to recognize industry environmental leaders from the region.
A highlight of the event included a keynote address and book signing by Mariel Hemingway and her partner Bobby Williams. For over 25 years, Mariel has pursued her passion for wellness, optimal living and educating the public about the same. She is considered a global thought leader in the area of holistic and balanced lifestyles. “We are delighted to welcome Mariel Hemingway and Bobby Williams who are two of the most dedicated leaders embracing and educating the world about sustainable living,” said Becki Ueno, Principal, Sustainable Law Group and SBC Board of Directors Member.
Presented by Marcum LLP and the Sustainable Law Group, the awards reception and ceremony salutes and spotlights Southern California companies working daily to support the mission of SBC: to improve operating efficiencies, profit margins, and staff productivity, while lowering the ecological impact of its products and services. In addition to company efforts, there are award categories carved out for outstanding individuals and projects.
