SUSTAINABILITY NOMINEES

Winners in the Sustainability category represent the gold standard of balancing the social, economic and environmental impacts of a project that render it "sustainable”. The winners incorporate aspects of energy efficiency into the redevelopment. For instance, prior to the project going on line, renewal energy resources (i.e. solar, wind or geothermal energy) may have been implemented to drive the cleanup or construction process. Some implement water conservation measures in the project (ie.. impacting potable water, gray water, stormwater, etc.). The winning projects in the sustainable category support a healthy indoor air quality for any inhabitants; and use techniques to remediate the site and protect indoor air quality and anticipate both water and energy savings as a result of the sustainable methods used.
