Voices of the Gulf
Sandy Sims: Restoration is Good Business
Project Greenshores is restoring and creating habitat along the urban shoreline of Pensacola Bay.
Business and community leaders in the Gulf clearly recognize the important link between a healthy environment and a thriving, resilient economy. Here is one example of a leader working to make a difference in the Gulf.
Sandy Sims is the Community Development Manager at Gulf Power, one of the major partners in creating Project Greenshores, a multi-million dollar habitat restoration and creation project located in Downtown Pensacola, Florida along the urban shoreline of Pensacola Bay.
"We were one of the first organizations involved in Project Greenshores. Our corporate office sits right across from the Pensacola Bay shoreline. The bay had been in distress for quite some time, and there were a lot of great ideas for improvement."
"When the concept of Project Greenshores came along, we felt like it was the best idea from a sustainability standpoint. At Gulf Power, we strongly support sustainability — one of the things we are very proud of with Project Greenshores is that it’s been a model for other projects."
