Growing Green Awards

Honoring People + Organizations
Transforming the Built Environment
Awards Dinner March 27

U.S. Green Building Council – Missouri Gateway Chapter is excited to host our 6th Annual Growing Green awards to celebrate and recognize people, organizations, institutions and companies that are transforming our built environment and our community into a healthier, more environmentally friendly and prosperous place to live, work and learn.

We are so proud to recognize local leaders, entrepreneurs, educators, and designers that advocate for high performance buildings, implement sustainably progressive communities, and demonstrate green as good business. Past nominees and winners share a passion for making the region more sustainable – one building at a time. The award categories span a wide range of efforts and are designed to be inclusive of all individuals, groups and organizations that are committed to green buildings and green communities, which includes new and existing buildings, landscapes, objects and systems.

2014 Growing Green Award categories are:
Community Champion: demonstrating leadership in giving back to our community through commitment of time, energy and passion to the built environment.
Education: exemplifying leadership in education pertaining to the built environment. Education occurs in many facets: the classroom; the workplace; in local government; at home; and lots of places in between.
Emerging Leader: recent arrivals to the sustainability movement making great strides in advancing sustainable practices as they relate to our built environment. These individuals or organizations are likely (but not required) to be young professionals and our green leaders of tomorrow.
Innovation: exemplifying leadership in transforming the built environment through the pioneering of new technologies and thinking forward to the needs of tomorrow.
Operational Excellence: representing leadership in operating the buildings and landscapes in our community with environmental sensitivity, resource efficiency, and longevity.

Winners will be announced at the Awards celebration and dinner on Thursday, March 27, 2014. For info please visit online at www.usgbc-mogateway.org/green-awards/. Questions? E-mail GrowingGreenAwards@gmail.com or call USGBC-Missouri Gateway staff at (314) 577-0854.
