Thank you to everyone who helped make Emerald Evening 2016 a huge success! More than 300 of GBA’s friends came to celebrate over two decades of inspiring the creation of our region’s healthy and high performing spaces – and the people who make them possible.
We were excited to honor Carnegie Mellon University’s Dr. Jared L. Cohon with our Legacy Award. As CMU’s third-longest president and current director of the Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation, Dr. Cohon has been a devoted catalyst for CMU’s sustainability policies, practices and successes.
We also honored Mike Gable, executive director of Construction Junction, with our Luminary Award. For the past 17 years, Mike has led Western Pennsylvania’s first nonprofit organization to collect and sell used and surplus building materials. His work, passion, and collaboration with the community has evolved a culture of reuse in countless ways that impact the lives of many different people and businesses.
