2018 Champion of the Land:

Hawaiian Islands Land Trust Honors Henk Rogers and Blue Planet Foundation for Sustainability Efforts

Hawaiian Islands Land Trust (HILT) is honoring Henk Rogers and Blue Planet Foundation as the 2018 Champion of the Land at the 17th annual Buy Back the Beach: Mālama Kīpuka Benefit Lū‘au on January 20, 2018.  Each year, HILT selects a person, group, or organization that has contributed significantly and has had a substantial impact on land conservation in Hawaii.

Henk Rogers, Founder and Board Chair of the Honolulu-based clean energy nonprofit Blue Planet Foundation, is committed to stewarding the environment through promoting solutions to our urgent climate challenge. Blue Planet Foundation's mission is to clear the path for 100 percent clean energy in Hawaii and beyond. Through collaboration and advocacy, Blue Planet champions scalable policies and programs to transform Hawaii’s energy systems to clean, renewable energy solutions.

“The work of Henk and the Blue Planet Foundation to move Hawaii toward a 100 percent clean energy future is a significant contribution toward Hawaii’s sustainability. Hawaii has the potential to lead the world in how we care for our environment,” said Kawika Burgess, HILT’s CEO. Blue Planet Foundation was the lead advocate for the nation’s first 100 percent renewable energy requirement. Hawai‘i’s legislature passed the aggressive law setting a goal of 100 percent renewable energy by 2045. This bold policy has since changed the conversation about energy in Hawai‘i and nationwide. Since the passing of the 100 percent renewable energy law, Blue Planet Foundation has been actively working to put a similar vision in place for ground transportation in Hawai‘i.

"On behalf of the Board of Directors of Blue Planet Foundation, I am honored that Hawaiian Islands Land Trust has chosen us as a recipient of its 2018 Champion of the Land award," Rogers said. "We are grateful for the recognition, and plan to continue to protect our planet and our future as we clear the path to 100 percent."

"We are very thankful for the honor, and excited to help create a renewable and sustainable Hawaii that serves as a model for the globe," said Jeff Mikulina, executive director of Blue Planet Foundation.
