CaGBC introduces green building product award

Thursday, February 5, 2015

The Canadian Green Building Council (CaGBC) has added a new award category to its Leadership Awards, which will be handed out at the Building Lasting Change event on June 3, 2015 in Vancouver.

The 2015 Green Building Product of the Year Award aims to encourage Canadian companies to develop sustainable building products and materials.

Eligible applicants must be a CaGBC national member with a Canadian manufactured or designed product.

The winner will be the first to receive the distinction and permitted to use the CaGBC Product of the Year crest on their website and in promotional materials.

The top three winners will be honoured with an award and earn recognition in the Fall 2015 issue of SAB Magazine and on the CaGBC website. The winners will also be asked to provide a short video about their product to be viewed at the June event.

Evaluation is based on responses to four questions regarding sustainability, transparency and verification, innovation and application.
