Hyatt Centric Park City wins Recycle Utah’s Green Business of the Year Award

PARK CITY, Utah — Recycle Utah recognized and awarded four local businesses on Tuesday night at the fifth annual Green Business Awards.

The finalists — Alpine Distilling, Cole Sport, Hyatt Centric Park City, Park City Gardens, and Ritual Chocolate — were chosen by a panel of local judges with sustainability knowledge for their commitment, impact, innovation, and follow-through with their sustainable goals.

The winners were chosen based on their dedication and desire to use sustainable business practices that help protect our environment.

The Green Business of the Year Award was given to Hyatt Centric Park City for “their continuous and significant strides with sustainability.”

“Reductions in waste, water usage and energy in particular have greatly reduced their carbon footprint,” Recycle Utah said in a statement announcing the awards. “Their innovative efforts and actions were recognized by the judges and are an example and inspiration to all businesses within Summit County.”

The Zest for Zero Award went to Park City Gardens, for their work over the past five years to “enhance their recycling, reuse and compost programs, water conservation and energy reduction measures, including upgrading vehicles and machinery to reduce emissions. Their continued enhancements to sustainability have been noticed.”

The judges also recognized Ritual Chocolate with the Global Impact Award. “They prioritize purchasing local, buying only organic cacao from Central and South American countries and focus on the ‘health of our planet is the key to our local health, happiness and economy’ into all they do, according to Robbie Stout, co-owner.”

In addition to the awards, the community voted for the People’s Choice Award to be given to the new Park City Outlets store fulFILLED, a zero waste and refill shop.

“Nobody’s a loser here, all these businesses need to be on the pedestal for their devotion to conservation,” said Mary Closser, Recycle Utah’s education director.
