2021 Green Tie Award Honorees

CVSC’s 2021 Green Tie honorees have each demonstrated the progress that can be made when our leaders and communities come together in support of a common goal – protecting South Carolina’s air, land, and water.

We are thankful for their work, their leadership, and their vision. We know that their commitment to protecting South Carolina’s most precious natural resources will inspire not only those of us here virtually tonight, but also future generations of leaders who will work to protect the South Carolina we love.
