Call them Green Building Rock Stars, Sustainability Super Heroes or just plain leaders. The South Carolina Chapter of the US Green Building Council wants to honor them at the Seventh Annual Green Building Leadership Awards Program, sponsored by Duke Energy and the Luncheon sponsored by BMW held in conjunction with SustainSC2013, April 24-26 in Myrtle Beach, SC. Nominations will be accepted for Leadership Awards and Exemplary Project Awards through February 28, 2013. Click here for the nomination form and instructions.
The awards honor outstanding people, organizations and projects that have furthered the cause of green building in South Carolina. Nominees must be honored for work performed in the state, and honored projects must have been completed within the past three years.
Leadership awards will honor individuals, firms or organizations that lead by example, or which have helped to transform markets by providing information or education that establishes the value of green building. They are intended to honor efforts “above and beyond” —not simply a job well done.
An Exemplary Project is one characterized by unique environmental, social and economic success, as well as its ability to inspire others. It will also be judged by measurable attributes such as energy or water savings. Projects must be registered for certification under the USGBC’s LEED certification program. In certain instances a project may be considered if it is registered under the Green Globes, EarthCraft or NAHB Green Homes programs.
