The 2019 CTGBC Green Building Awards Ceremony was held on the evening of Oct. 3rd in New Haven, in the Springside Community Room, at Common Ground High School, Urban Farm, and Educational Center. Recognized for its leadership, Common Ground High School is one of the first environmentally themed charter high schools and the farm is Connecticut's longest-running community farm.  Additionally, the Urban and Educational Center is a LEED Gold certified building and previous CTGBC Green Building Award of Honor winner. 

Keynote Speaker:  John Mandyck, CEO of Urban Green

As a special highlight this year, we were pleased to have John Mandyck, the CEO of Urban Green Council in NYC, as our featured keynote speaker. As NYC is the largest city in the world to declare a climate emergency, John is at the forefront of the efforts to transform buildings for a sustainable future. His keynote, entitled 'Building Forward', discussed the Building Emissions laws in the recently passed NYC Climate Mobilization Act.

Thank you to our 2019 Awards Sponsors! Your support was invaluable to this year's event.
