Green Builder Media’s annual Green Home of the Year and Sustainability Awards recognize the industry’s most authentic, advanced, beautiful, sustainable projects and the professionals who design and construct them.
As the nation grapples with an ongoing pandemic, social unrest and economic uncertainty, building professionals report an intense demand for their expertise, sweat and insights. We all could use some good news. Won't you share some in the form of an inspiring project that creates a beacon of light in dark times?
This year, we’re looking for the best green homes that include sustainable features, innovative design, whole home performance, and integration with the natural environment, as well as the Most Sustainable Community/Development, Green Innovation of the Year, Best Small Footprint Living Project, Sustainable City of the Year and Sustainability Superhero.
Winners will receive coverage in the January/February 2021 issue of Green Builder magazine, on www.greenbuildermedia.com and on our social media outlets. They will also receive five complimentary copies of the January/February 2021 issue.
