Join Green Building Alliance for our Emerald Evening 2017 gala and awards ceremony on September 21st at the August Wilson Center. Mark your calendars for the sustainability networking event of the year as we celebrate the people, projects, and initiatives that are transforming our region’s built environment. Enjoy an evening of connecting with Pittsburgh’s green innovators and conversing with friends over drinks and an elegant stationed dinner and dessert.
This year we are thrilled to present our new Leadership Award to the Frick Environmental Center, the world’s first free and open publicly-owned building set to achieve the rigorous standards of the Living Building Challenge, as well as LEED Platinum certification. In addition to the Leadership Award, GBA is pleased to present Majestic Lane with our Luminary Award to recognize his dedicated work to make equity integral to sustainable development. And we are proud to honor the Millvale EcoDistrict with our new Inspiration Award for its inclusive community engagement process.
