November 18, 2016


The Virginia Association of Counties (VACo) is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2016 Go Green Awards, a program designed to encourage implementation of specific environmental policies and practical actions that reduce emissions and save local governments money.

The winning counties are:

  • Albemarle County
  • Arlington County
  • Chesterfield County
  • James City County
  • Louisa County
  • Prince George County
  • York County

This is the eighth year VACo has participated in the program, which was started in 2007 and called “Go Green Virginia.”  

The program is generously supported and sponsored by Moseley Architects and Trane.

“The winning counties represent a growing group of localities that believe in taking innovative steps to reduce energy usage and promote sustainability,” VACo Executive Director Dean Lynch said. “This year we add first-timer Prince George County to that group. Congratulations to all counties earning a Go Green Award.”
