Cassidy Turley was the only commercial real estate services provider among the honorees.
“Tonight’s winners are dedicated to improving our city’s environment, communities, and economy. Our ongoing effort to plan for a Sustainable DC for today and generations to come will build on the innovation, determination, and leadership we see among these dedicated members of our community,” stated Mayor Gray. “I thank them for their contributions and look forward to working with them to spread sustainable best practices to businesses, institutions, and neighborhoods across this great city.”
