The Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia’s (SBN) Excellence in GSI Awards is the region’s only award ceremony recognizing the projects and people that bring the triple bottom line (environmental, social, and economic) benefits of green stormwater infrastructure to life. The ceremony also celebrates all of the project partners that make them possible. 

Despite the challenges that our business community and region continue to face due to the COVID-19 pandemic and supply and labor disruptions, incredible progress has been made in our region’s GSI industry. As such, SBN is seeking exemplary GSI projects, innovations, and leaders for the 6th Annual Excellence in GSI Awards (April 21, 2022).

This year’s Excellence in GSI Awards will be held in person at FringeArts and La Peg, a familiar venue for those who have joined us for past award ceremonies. SBN is excited to honor the incredible work completed to advance the goal of a healthy and green environment for all. 

SBN will recognize excellence in GSI in the following categories:

  1. Public Projects: This award recognizes built projects located in the Greater Philadelphia region managed in large part by a public agency and/or on public property (municipal, state, federal). Projects completed between October 2019-January 2022 are eligible.
  2. Private Projects: This award recognizes built projects located in the Greater Philadelphia region managed in large part by a private entity and/or on private property. Projects completed between October 2019-January 2022 are eligible.
  3. Innovation: This award recognizes regional projects, processes, programs, or technology that have broken new ground by applying information, ingenuity, and initiative to advance the state-of-the-art of GSI.
