As the Council entered its seventh year of awards programs, the emphasis was updated to reflect its evolving approach to building design, summed up by Beyond Green. These unique awards will recognize initiatives that shape, inform, and catalyze the high-performance building market, as well as the real-world application of high-performance construction practices.

The program is open to all and offers two entry categories: high-performance initiatives and high-performance buildings. Federal, state, and private-sector entries are welcome. Commercial, institutional, and residential buildings are all eligible. Appropriate applicants would include trade associations, researchers, architects, engineers, consultants, universities and educators, builders, public and private building owners, product manufacturers and suppliers, marketing and media experts, and utilities.
