Sign up to attend the September 20 event, and nominate green leaders by July 20 for the Sustainable Business Awards.

The Carolinas Green Gala and Sustainable Business Awards returns to the Ritz-Carlton in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Thursday, September 20. The annual Green Gala is a celebration of local leaders in the green building movement and features a sit-down dinner, keynote speaker, silent auction and awards ceremony that members of the USGBC North Carolina and USGBC South Carolina communities will not want to miss.

Sustainable Business Awards

The Sustainable Business Awards presented at the gala highlight the people and projects that are transforming the built environment every day in North and South Carolina’s marketplace.

You can submit projects in five categories:

  • Innovative Project, Building Design and Construction
  • Innovative Project, Interior Design and Construction
  • Innovative Project, Existing Building Performance
  • Community Champion Project
  • Marquee Green Building

Attendees also get a voice, and will vote on all nominees during the gala to select the “People’s Choice” award.

Since we believe that every story about a green building is about people, two special awards will be given for exceptional volunteer leadership and to a Community Change Agent in the Carolinas. Don’t be shy—nominate yourself or someone you know who is deserving of this recognition.

Nominate people and projects for these awards by Fri., July 20.

Rob Eggers Memorial Scholarship

In honor of the late Rob Eggers, a valued member of the Charlotte sustainable design community, three individuals are recognized for their work on community-based projects in the Carolinas that advance sustainability and resilience in vulnerable, low-income and other underserved communities. The recipients of the Rob Eggers Memorial Scholarship will receive a trip to Greenbuild 2018 that includes:
