Now in its second year, The EBie Awards™ are a nationwide juried competition created by Urban Green Council, USGBC New York, that celebrates performance improvements in Existing Buildings (therefore the EBies), and the people who made them happen.
The EBies recognizes “unsung heroes” who have made great strides in improving environmental performance but whose accomplishments may otherwise go unheralded – not just building owners, but building operators, auditors, commissioning agents, lighting designers, plumbing engineers, and others. Unlike other awards, the EBies are based on measurable improvements; complete details and past winners can be found on the EBie website.
As an official EBie Partner, the San Diego Green Building Council hopes the our region will have many EBie entries as well as winners since we know how many great sustainability projects we have here in San Diego. The EBie submission period is open now and runs through February 26, 2013, with winners announced at the EBie Awards LIVE on June 19, 2013 in New York City.
