We want you! Actually…we want your buildings and your green building innovations!
We have streamlined the process as well as the categories of our event; also we hope to see dozens of entries in both the Green Building of the Year award and the Green Innovation Award. The contest will culminate with our Earth Day Gala on April 17th, 2014. We look forward to seeing you there!
Since 2008, USGBC Massachusetts has recognized the most innovative green buildings, products, processes and technologies in the Massachusetts real estate community. Past winners have demonstrated ingenuity, replicability, and scored well on the triple bottom line – an important concept in sustainability that considers the building’s overall impact on economic prosperity, environmental quality, and social equity.
This year’s entry deadline is March 15, 2014 and winners will be announced in April 2014.
2014 Entry Categories:
Why Should I Enter?
- Local Recognition: submissions will be put on display at the Earth Day Gala as well as at various USGBC MA events. Award entrants will be highlighted on the USGBC MA website and in the media surrounding the Earth Day Gala.
- Regional Recognition: one existing building will advance to a regional EBie competition held in NYC in June 2014
- Feedback: the submissions will be judged by a panel of 3-5 judges and a summary of responses will be available to entrants upon request.
- Inspiration: the awards are designed to highlight Massachusetts’ innovation in green design and operations. They recognize buildings that best live up to their green design potential and help raise the bar for future buildings.
