$200 / entry | payable by credit card | must accompany the online submission
Award Submission Title:
Describe the nature of your organization and the context in which it operates. The judges want to know the professional sector (e.g. healthcare, tourism, etc.) in which your client operates, and the context (what are the sustainability drivers? What are the challenges?)
This is the section where you’d also include anything else you’d like the judges to know about this project. Remember to type in at least 12-point type, with 1.5 line spacing.
Please do not include press clippings or other promotional materials. And, although you may draw upon information contained in these materials, please do not include the materials.
For Sustainable Leadership Design Categories: The judges would like to see a focus on linkage between sustainability objectives and how they fit into the overall project and organizational objectives.
For Sustainable Leadership Development Categories: The judges want to see a linkage between the project’s objectives and the organization’s mission, objectives and strategies. The project should not be a “stand‐alone” effort; rather, it should demonstrate the fulfillment of the organization’s overall strategy for sustainability.
What is the difference between the design and the development categories?
The design categories recognize completed building projects. These projects should:
What is NOT acceptable:
- Integrate sustainability practices with design excellence
- Meet the client’s sustainability objectives for the project, and for the organization as a whole
- Demonstrate collaboration between the design firm and client as equal partners
The development categories recognize organization‐wide real estate programs. These programs should:
- Buildings that are not completed or have not been occupied for six months.
- Buildings completed earlier than 2014.
What is NOT acceptable:
- Integrate the organization’s sustainability mission and strategies throughout the organizations – penetrating everyday practices of its real estate/facilities operations
- Demonstrate a clear link between the organization’s overall strategy for sustainability and the sustainable programs. This is best accomplished through measurable programs.
- Organizational sustainability strategies without programs
- Stand‐alone programs (e.g., programs not linked to an organization’s sustainability strategies)
