Princeton Hydro, a firm that specializes in water resources engineering, was honored with the inaugural Sustainabilty Award by the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters at its annual gala last week.
Princeton Hydro President Geoffrey Goll, who has been the managing partner of the firm since it was founded in 1998, said the company was humbled to be honored by the league.
“Our firm is committed to improving our ecosystems, quality of life and communities for the better, and we share many of the same values as New Jersey LCV and its supporters,” he said. “Both internally and externally, we aim to integrate environmental stewardship and sustainability into our work, from reducing our carbon footprint in our offices to designing resilient, nature-based solutions in New Jersey neighborhoods and beyond.”
The Sustainability Award was given in recognition of a company committed to a sustainable future in New Jersey, integrating sustainability in everyday life and making sustainability more accessible to the public.
The company was one of many honored by the league.
