Six sustainable projects win Austin Green Awards

Late last year, Austin architects, designers, and urbanists gathered to celebrate the six winners of the Austin Green Awards, an honor that recognizes sustainable design in Texas’s capital city.

“Over the last year, we find so much to celebrate with participation in Austin Energy Green Building ratings at record levels, a new commercial rating system, and the new Austin Energy Headquarters earning a 5-Star AEGB rating and LEED Platinum certification,” Austin Energy Green Building Energy Efficiency Services Manager Heidi Kasper said at the October ceremony. “But we’ve also witnessed 15 weather related climate disaster events totaling more than $15 billion in losses, causing major suffering in the US and around the world. And, we know that it is the most vulnerable among us who are impacted the most. More work needs to be done if we want to realize a future of climate resilient development that supports human health and well-being in a just and equitable way. I know that I’m not alone in my desire for this future, and that it will be through our combined efforts that we can be successful.”
