The city of Boise defines sustainability as living or acting in a manner that improves our quality of life, promotes a strong economy, and conserves our natural resources. Since 1998, over 40 businesses have been honored with an EnviroGuard Sustainability Awards (formerly the EnviroGuard Pollution Prevention Awards).
