On October 29, 2013, Washington Business Magazine hosted the annual Washington Green Business Awards, honoring the “50 Greenest Companies in Washington State.” For the second year running, Keeney’s Office Supply and Interiors made the list, and for 2013 Keeney’s was named the Silver Award winner in the Business Services category. Car2Go won the Gold award for Business Services.
Lisa Keeney McCarthy brought members of her sales and management teams to the stage to accept the award, and this is what she said: “Thanks very much to Washington Business Magazine and the judges. It is an honor to be selected to the Green 50. We are so fortunate to live in a part of the country in which sustainability is valued and supported.
“I thank the customers who have embraced our program, especially the ones who have helped us develop and refine it. We have over 100 agencies and companies, from small consultancies to the largest governmental entities in the region, actively engaged in our program and as they work with us, they push us to make it better by asking questions and suggesting new services, reports, and products.
“I also want to thank the fabulous team I get to work with every day. Many of our best practices start with their ideas. They work incredibly hard and with great focus and intelligence to improve what we do internally and with our customer facing programs. I believe that is why our program is so successful – we all own it.”
