Honoring sustainability leaders who are driving market transformation within Wisconsin's built environment.

In today's ever changing world, there are individuals and organizations who are leading the way toward a brighter and more sustainable future. They understand that a sustainable approach can result in improved bottom lines, resilient communities and healthy ecological systems.

Applications are now open for the 2017 USGBC Wisconsin Leader Awards. The awards recognize innovative, high-performance green buildings that engages the regional community. Winners will be recognized at the Transformation Awards Reception, taking place June 8 at the Milwaukee County War Memorial Center.

Nomination forms are due by May 3, 2017.

While the 2017 award categories are re-imagined, re-branded, and re-launched, we kept the best parts of our prestigious Sustainability and Energy Efficiency (Se2) awards.

Unless noted otherwise, each category is intended to highlight projects, individuals and partners from within Wisconsin. Nominees may apply for consideration if their impact occurred between Jan. 1, 2015 and Dec. 31, 2016 in the following categories:

  • Innovative Design, New Construction — This is the next evolution of the Sustainability and Energy Efficiency (SE2) award program. This award is for a BD+C (Building Design and Construction) project that demonstrates use of new technologies and strategies to push the envelope of green design, and meet project challenges in an innovative way. Nomination Guidance Document (revised)
  • Building Performance — This is the next evolution of the SE2 award program. This award is for an O+M (Operations and Maintenance) project that demonstrates a significant increase in building performance through the implementation of sustainable design solutions. Nomination Guidance Document (revised)
  • Most Successful Community Engagement — For a project team who has demonstrated creative and innovative strategies for connecting either with their internal or external community through a building project. Nomination Guidance Document (revised)

Qualified applications will be reviewed by a panel of USGBC members and green building experts. Award winners will be notified mid May 2017 and recognized during the Transformation Awards Reception.
