The Building Owners and Managers Association of San Francisco today recognized nine San Francisco companies for their demonstrated leadership in developing innovative practices that promote sustainable “green” working environments at the 2007 Earth Awards Luncheon.
The Earth Awards, formerly known as the Commercial Office Recycler of the Year (CoRY) Awards, acknowledge efforts by local commercial properties to reduce water and energy usage, reduce or eliminate use of toxics that affect indoor air quality, educate commercial tenants in sustainable operating practices, promote the use of public transportation and bicycling in daily commuting, and recycle everything from paper, bottles, cans, cardboard and food waste to construction debris.
Cash prizes totaling $21,000 were awarded by Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) and the San Francisco Department of the Environment to winners selected from several categories of commercial buildings.
The BOMA Earth Awards is a collaborative event to promote sustainable practices in San Francisco’s buildings.
Co-sponsors include PG&E, the San Francisco Department of the Environment, Golden Gate Disposal & Recycling Company and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. Commercial properties were divided into three categories: Small Commercial, representing buildings up to 300,000 square feet in size; Medium Commercial, representing buildings between 300,000 and 600,000 square feet in size, and Large Commercial, representing buildings and complexes more than 600,000 square feet in size. There were a total of 38 contestants.
