EBie Awards 2015 Finalists Announced by Urban Green
Urban Green Council, the New York affiliate of the U.S. Green Building Council, has announced finalists from around the country for the EBie Awards. The winners of the nationwide competition will be announced in New York on June 22.
The EBies (EE-bees, short for Existing Buildings) recognize improved environmental performance in existing buildings among building operators, facilities managers, owners, engineers and other professionals who conceived and implemented the work. The awards put a spotlight on the leaders who have found replicable solutions that cut energy and water use, measurably reduce waste, make lighting more efficient, engage tenants in green initiatives, and make sustainability improvements across a building portfolio.
