At the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in Philadelphia in November 2013, USGBC recognized those who've shown outstanding dedication to the movement to green our built environment through the annual Leadership Awards.

Gerald Hines, founder and chairman of Hines Interest Limited Partnership, was awarded the 2013 President’s Award. Hines is a longtime leader in the real estate industry with an unparalleled commitment to green building. With more than 100 million square feet of LEED-certified space, Hines has built a legacy of sustainability that continues to expand and evolve.

“We decided early on that it was important for us to have the most efficient buildings possible,” he said. “We always thought the clients would appreciate low operating costs and better conditions for their employees. And tenants today say, ‘I won’t be in anything except a [LEED] Gold building, or Platinum.’”
