Green Standards and Pepper Construction Win CoreNet Global’s 2020 H. Bruce Russell Global Innovator’s Award   

ATLANTA (28 October, 2020) — Green Standards, a Toronto-based recycler and redistributor of office furniture and equipment, and Pepper Construction, a Chicago-based environmentally friendly construction company, have each won the H. Bruce Russell Global Innovator’s Award, presented this week by CoreNet Global during the association’s 2020 Virtual Summit.   

CoreNet Global is the global association for corporate real estate.  

The association presents the H. Bruce Russell Global Innovator’s Award, sponsored by Gensler, each year to leading organizations that demonstrate best-in-class practices in advancing thought leadership in corporate real estate.

Pepper Construction’s Net-Zero Jobsite Construction 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.

Green Standards 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.
