Call for nominations for the National Leadership in Sustainability & Energy Efficiency Award
The ICC National Leadership in Sustainability and Energy Efficiency Award (formerly the Standard Bearers Award) recognizes outstanding contributions to the growth and enhancement of codes or public policy advancing the principles of the International Code Council’s Sustainability Membership Council in the field of energy efficiency and/or sustainability in the built environment.
The annual award honors states, cities, towns and individuals who go above and beyond to raise compliance with building energy and green codes — and by doing so, help unlock billions in savings and improve the efficiency of America’s new and existing buildings and homes using cost-effective, practical and innovative strategies. Award recipients must demonstrate an exceptional record of contribution, either in one-time or cumulative efforts, made during their career or in the course of past operations through significant contributions and involvement in advocacy, leadership and development of codes and standards, programs, public policy, publications, goals, or objectives in the area of energy efficiency and/or sustainability in the built environment, either directly or indirectly supporting the intent and purpose of the International Green Construction Code, the International Energy Conservation Code and/or ICC–700 National Green Building Standard. Nominees for this award can be individuals or organizations. Self-nominations will be accepted.
“The Code Council is proud to recognize our members who are actively working to improve the design and construction of buildings through better energy code compliance,” said International Code Council Chief Executive Officer Dominic Sims, CBO. “These leaders recognize the importance of our codes and standards in ensuring a safe and more sustainable built environment and we are pleased to applaud their leadership.”
The application period opens on May 1, 2019, and all applications must be submitted by July 1, 2019, for consideration. The award will be presented during the 2019 ICC Annual Conference held from Oct. 20–23, 2019, in Clark County, Nev. Please help the Code Council to continue to set the standard of excellence in professional achievement by acknowledging exceptional performance, dedication, creativity and innovation. Submit your nomination for consideration as a recipient of the ICC National Leadership in Sustainability and Energy Efficiency Award.
