I’m not generally one to boast, but, today, I can’t help myself. Green Builder® magazine has won a prestigious award from the National Association of Real Estate Editors (NAREE), Best Residential Trade Publication!
“This magazine packs a lot of information in a small space. It broke new ground by challenging readers to do better with features on living with a smaller carbon footprint and detailing environmental crises of our time," NAREE judges pointed out.
Creating something out of nothing is hard, and developing Green Builder Media’s portfolio of offerings has been a long and arduous road. Our company has certainly evolved since the initial launch of Green Builder magazine in January 2006.
When we first started, we carefully doled out information about green building products and practices to a sometimes skeptical readership. But, over time, things evolved— awareness grew about the realities of climate change and diminishing resources; the recession altered the world’s perception of expensive and dirty energy; and extreme weather brought issues like durability and risk mitigation to the forefront—offering us the ability to advance our message, increase our impact, and expand our reach.
Today, we attempt to offer the most forward-thinking, mind-expanding information to catalyze and inspire commitment to sustainable living. As our editor in chief, Matt Power, says, “What's exciting about winning this award now is that we're breaking all the rules. We're taking the magazine in directions that no other b2b magazine has dared—not just reporting events, but dishing out predictions about the future, with our year-long Celestia Project. The American Dream is about to flip completely upside down, as people ditch the suburbs and return to urban neighborhoods, and we're thrilled to be heralding the shift."
