South Carolina Chapter US Green Building Council
Leadership Awards Nomination
Must be submitted by 5:00 PM Wednesday, March 25, 2011
Word Documents must be emailed to SustainSC2011@gmail.com, Subject Line “Leadership Awards”
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 Fifth Annual Green Building Leadership Awards Program, held in conjunction with SustainSC2011, June 2-3 in Columbia. Nominations will be accepted for Leadership Awards and Exemplary Project Awards through March 25th.
The South Carolina Chapter of the USGBC will 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.
Awards will be made in two categories: Leadership and Exemplary Project. Leadership awards will honor individuals, firms or organizations that lead by example, or which have helped to transform markets by providing information, education, or data that shows the value of green building. Leadership awards will 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 sustainable attributes such as energy or water savings. The project must be complete by the time of submission. Projects may include new building, retrofits, interior fitouts, or landscape design. Projects must be registered under USGBC’s LEED certification program. In certain cases, projects may be considered if they are registered under the Green Globes, EarthCraft, or NAHB Green Homes programs. Please submit certification checklist with nomination form.
