2019 Excellence in GSI Awards Ceremony

Event Navigation

The Excellence in GSI Awards Ceremony is the region’s only award that celebrates and elevates green stormwater infrastructure projects and innovations, the triple bottom line (TBL) benefits of a nature-based approach to stormwater management, and the partners who bring these projects to life in the Greater Philadelphia Area.

Join us on Thursday, May 23, along with the region’s industry professionals, developers and property owners, government and non-profit institutions, and academics.

On behalf of the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia (SBN), the GSI Partners will be recognizing excellence in GSI in the following categories:

  1. Public Projects: Built projects managed in large part by a public agency and/or on public property (municipal, state, federal)

  2. Private Projects: Built projects managed in large part by private entity and/or on private property

  3. Innovation: Processes, programs or technology that break new ground, by applying information, ingenuity, and initiative to significantly advance GSI’s impact

Winning applications will highlight the triple bottom line (environmental, social, and economic) benefits of a green infrastructure approach to stormwater management.
