Global Green USA's Sustainable Design Awards were established in 1999 to recognize specific advancements in industry, building, media, organizations, and public policy. Whether they are helping to protect our air and water, eliminating weapons of mass destruction, stemming climate change, or raising the consciousness of millions, we honor the 'designs' of these leaders, who are courageous enough to make the commitment to sustainability.
