30 Under 30

It's time to nominate rising stars for the GreenBiz 30 Under 30 list

The GreenBiz editorial team is looking for someone (actually, someones) to celebrate! If you know a young professional in the field of corporate sustainability — someone who already has made their mark during the first decade of their career — we would love an introduction.

We seek nominations for GreenBiz's sixth annual 30 Under 30 feature. This annual list recognizes individuals tackling some of the toughest sustainability challenges in business — from inside big companies, at the helm of startups, working in the nonprofit sector, shaping clean economy policy, the list is broad.

You may nominate yourself or another individual using the form at the end of this article. (If you nominate yourself, you’ll need to provide a reference.) Review our age requirement closely: Nominees must not have reached their 30th birthday before May 17, when we plan to introduce the next list of honorees to the GreenBiz community. 

We encourage submissions for individuals in all roles — even if the person doesn't have "sustainability" in their title. If they are making a difference in climate action that has an impact on the corporate sector, we would love to hear about their work. And we are seeking diverse suggestions, in the many senses of that term, especially Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) individuals as well as those representing companies based outside the United States. We have much to learn from different perspectives.

All finalists will be notified confidentially after the nominations close Jan. 23, when we'll reach out to interview the selected honorees. We regret that we will be unable to contact those not selected for the list.

Updated January 25, 2021: Nominations for the 2021 list are now closed.
