The built environment is only one part of the green industry fabric.
USGBC Georgia created the CHRYSALIS AWARDS to support broadening the conversation between the green building industry and our green community. Our goal is to support and recognize the PEOPLE and PROJECTS within our community that represent the breadth of what sustainability means from a high-performance building to an urban farm feeding a neighborhood, to a material with a low carbon footprint, to a thriving green team within a company.
We know there are leaders in our communities of all industries engaging in extraordinary work, driving innovation, transforming their industry, and accelerating knowledge exchange around a diversity of sustainability strategies. All these initiatives are environmental movements implemented by a project or person transforming our community.
Help us recognize these transformational leaders and projects!
WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THE CHRYSALIS AWARDS?
A chrysalis is the form a caterpillar takes before it emerges from its cocoon as a fully formed moth or butterfly. It is considered a transformational state for insects from larvae to adult.
USGBC Georgia wants to support and honor leaders transforming Georgia’s green building and green communities.
BEYOND ZERO VIEWING
As part of your ticket to the awards, please join us on Wednesday, August 18th at 7pm for a viewing of Beyond Zero. No other registration needed. Check out the trailer below!!
“Beyond Zero is a fascinating story, not only about inspirational and visionary founder Ray Anderson, but the struggles and determination of a company trying to become a positive force in the world. The film delivers a message that needs to be told: In the end it indeed boils down to people, and business can be more successful and resilient, simply by doing the right thing.”
Paul Polman - Former CEO, Unilever & Board Member, United Nations Global Compact
“An inspiring and practical wake-up call to what’s possible… Required viewing for every CEO, Entrepreneur and MBA student in America.”
