Global Innovator’s Award - GIA

Celebrating the Forward-Thinkers, Innovators & Game Changers in Corporate Real Estate

The H. Bruce Russell Global Innovator's Award (GIA) recognizes excellence and innovation in corporate real estate (CRE). Since 2000, the award has honored the "game changers" in CRE—those individuals and companies whose work, ideas and best practices elevate the practice of corporate real estate.

Nominees for the GlA are chosen from project submissions in three categories—Sustainable Leadership, Economic Development and Industry Excellence. The winner of the Global Innovator's Award is recognized live on-stage at CoreNet Global's Annual North America Summit, during the annual awards and recognition dinner. Their achievement is also showcased in the LEADER magazine and the Knowledge Center Online, and distributed via CoreNet Global press releases.

For more information, contact Tim Venable at tvenable@corenetglobal.org.

Green Standards Logo

Green Standards: Sustainable Decommission Solution for Corporate FF&E - North America

Inspired by the circular economy, Green Standards was founded in 2009 to solve the growing problem of office furniture waste. The organization has developed an industry-leading, managed program of office furniture donation, resale, and recycling that to date has diverted more than 70,000 tons of workplace furniture and equipment from landfill (a 98.6% diversion rate) and generated over $30 million of in-kind donations to more than 5,000 non-profits and communities across North America.

Pepper Construction Logo

Pepper Construction: Pepper Construction's Net-Zero Jobsite Construction Trailer

With construction, an untapped resource in combating carbon emissions, the Net-Zero Jobsite Trailer leverages technology to make the project management process paperless while providing a healthy, high-performing environment for its occupants that runs on renewable energy resources. Essentially a tiny building, the trailer works holistically as one system to produce as much energy as it uses.
