Apply for a DESA for your small Devon business at devon.ca/DESA today

The Town of Devon is proud to launch the third year of its Devon Environmental Sustainability Awards (DESA) which recognizes local businesses that are making an environmental impact in the Devon community.

The impact your business is making can be big or small, whether it’s using 100 per cent organic materials or initiating a simple recycling program; the awards recognize any initiatives that involve being a responsible steward of the environment.

To be eligible to win a DESA, businesses must have less than 100 employees, have been in business for over 12 months, have a registered business license with the Town of Devon and be located in Devon.

"Council is proud to support this initiative that encourages our local businesses to look at ways to be environmentally conscious,” said Mayor Ralph. “Showcasing these initiatives being employed by our businesses brings exposure on many levels, not only for the businesses, but for our whole community."

The first place winner of the DESA will receive a $1,500 cash prize, a DESA plaque to display at their business, media recognition and nomination by the Town of Devon for an Alberta Emerald Award. Second Place will receive a $1,000 cash prize, a DESA certificate for their business and media recognition and the runner ups will also be featured on the Devon website’s business section with their sustainability initiatives.

To apply, nominate a business or learn more about the Devon Environmental Sustainability Awards, go to www.devon.ca/DESA. We look forward to seeing many more great entries this year!

The DESA application deadline is September 21, 2018.
