2016 Austin Green Awards Recognizes
Six Outstanding Projects
The Austin Green Awards is Austin’s first recognition program to specifically highlight outstanding accomplishments in the broad arena of sustainable design and innovation, recognizing forward facing design strategies that respond to rapidly evolving environmental, social, and health imperatives.
The 2016 Austin Green Awards were announced at the inaugural Austin Green Awards Celebration on November 9th, 2016. Former Austin Mayor Will Wynn, a long time proponent of green building and sustainability-inspired innovation, kicked off the Celebration by embracing the notion that “the time has come to celebrate Austin’s exemplary green initiatives”—and asking the full house crowd, “what took us so long?”
