2016 Sustainable Innovation Awards
USGBC-LA’s 6th Annual Sustainable Innovation Awards honor commitment to a sustainably built environment. Unlike standardized LEED rating systems, the Sustainable Innovation Awards evaluate merit based upon sustainable strategies that demonstrate exemplary performance by going above and beyond LEED credit achievement.
The team will be recognized during USGBC-LA’s 12th Annual Green Gala in November.
