Lake City, Colo., Aug. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --


Each year, Green Builder Media’s editorial team recognizes pioneering companies that are confronting environmental challenges in innovative ways. This year’s Eco-Leader selections don’t disappoint—with breakthrough technologies and inventive approaches to reducing our collective footprint, these organizations are paving the way to a sustainable future.

“Being an Eco-Leader means finding different and better ways to go about saving the environment, or newer and bolder ways to put existing efforts to use,” says Green Builder Editor-in-Chief Matt Power. “That’s what we found with this year’s green thinkers: a group that’s taken a step beyond simply closing the valves on the fossil fuel-driven exhaust ports in favor of cleaner renewable energy sources.”

Eco-leaders are often first to get there in terms of technology or innovation, but the true green companies don’t stop there--they continue to advance and lead their industries.

“This year’s Eco-Leaders address so many of the major trends powering the building industry today,” says Green Builder Media CEO Sara Gutterman. “According to COGNITION Smart Data, key trends include massive transition to net zero homes and buildings, rise in energy-efficiency spending, proliferation of demand side energy management, and relentless consumer interest in health and wellness. Our Eco-Leaders have deployed strategies to address these trends, creating innovative products and technologies that leverage the transition in the built environment.”
