Thank you for making this year’s Emerald Evening a stunning success!
We embarked on our most ambitious (and delicious) program yet, and our staff is honored to have filled the August Wilson Center with the most inspiring, innovative and dedicated group of sustainability professionals Western Pennsylvania has to offer. And we aren’t just talking about our incredible awardees.
GBA stands at the center of a diverse community of professionals, and our work is only possible through alliances spanning Pittsburgh’s building, design, manufacturing, education, business, and philanthropic sector. This year we are thrilled to have celebrated an equally multifaceted group of leaders, whose vision and unrelenting dedication are transforming Pittsburgh into a sustainable place for all. Among our awardees are the Frick Environmental Center, the world’s first free and publicly-owned building set to achieve both Living Building and LEED Platinum designation; Majestic Lane, the city’s first Deputy Chief of Neighborhood Empowerment; the Millvale EcoDistrict, whose inclusive development is being modeled around the nation; and Michael Kuhn, for his many years of service to the GBA community.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts, reflections, and festive spirit with us. We hope to see you next year!
