USGBC acclaimed at Honor Awards

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and its President, CEO and Founding Chairman, Rick Fedrizzi, were recognized with the National Building Museum’s 2009 Honor Award at its annual gala last week. The award acknowledges leadership on environmental issues and the significant accomplishments made in improving sustainability within the built environment.

“It’s an honor to be recognized amongst many visionary leaders in the sustainability moment, and by an organization that has exhibited continued leadership within the built environment,” said Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO and Founding Chair of the USGBC. “The green building movement offers an opportunity to respond to the most-important challenges of our times, and we remain single-mindedly committed to delivering on our vision of green buildings for everyone within a generation.”

The Honor Award was established by the National Building Museum in 1986 to salute those who have significantly improved the built environment. Other honorees included Mayor Richard M. Daley and the City of Chicago; Majora Carter; and Louis Chênevert and United Technologies (UTC). The National Building Museum is America’s leading cultural institution dedicated to exploring and celebrating architecture, design, engineering, construction, and planning.
