Greenleaf

Greenleaf Award

The City of Livonia Greenleaf Award was created to recognize Livonia organizations which implement sustainable practices, social responsibility and economic development in their operations.

Modeled on the "Triple Bottom Line" approach, these organizations demonstrate to our community that the idea of economic prosperity, social equity and environmental quality are equally important.

In collaboration with the City of Livonia, Livonia Chamber of Commerce, and the Greenleaf Commission on Sustainability, this award recognizes Livonia organizations that demonstrate their commitment to making Livonia a more sustainable, green community.
