The annual Innovation in Sustainability Awards luncheon took place Friday at the Governor Hotel in Portland, gathering the state's leaders in sustainable business to celebrate some of the brightest lights.

The awards, selected with input from the city of Portland's Sustainability at Work program, are designed to highlight organizations and businesses who are raising the bar for sustainability in the state. โ€” a place that leads the nation when it comes to green practices.

As David Griswold, CEO of Sustainable Harvest put it in his comments upon taking the title for Innovation in Supply Chain: Oregon is probably the toughest state in which to win a sustainable business award.

Portland's outgoing Mayor Sam Adams was on hand, along with impact investing experts Tony Arnerich and Dave Chen.
