2022 Green Tie Award Honorees

CVSC’s 2022 Green Tie honorees have each demonstrated the impact that can be made on South Carolina when dedicated leaders fight to protect South Carolina’s air, land, and water.

This year’s honorees have led efforts to ensure all South Carolinians drink clean water, enjoy thousands of acres of protected lands, and have the right to live in pollution-free communities. Their commitment to protect the South Carolina we love is an inspiration to current and future generations fighting for a better South Carolina.
