The Electronics Day Community Award is given in recognition of "the person who has most generously dedicated time and effort to support the development of a legacy of environmental stewardship in the [electronics] industry."
Ms. Gordon was nominated "for realizing early on that environmental responsibility can lead to efficiencies and savings in the workplace and for disseminating this knowledge throughout the electronics industry and beyond."

Since 1987, her company has helped technology companies create more efficient supply chains and reduce environmental impact for increased profitability. Her insights on environmental sustainability and the electronics industry have appeared in nearly 1,000 articles, she has been interviewed on numerous television and radio programs, and she is an international keynote speaker.
Of receiving the award, Gordon said, "I am truly grateful for this opportunity and will continue to strive to strengthen the industry's health and sustainability for the rest of my career. Please join me."
