2022 Awardees Reflect the Leadership of
Municipalities and Nonprofits in Net Zero Buildings
Chicago, IL -- Illinois Green Alliance announced the recipients of this year’s Emerald Awards, dubbed the 2022 Path to Zero Heroes, for their ongoing efforts to mainstream net zero buildings in Illinois.
The Illinois Green Alliance Emerald Awards were launched in 2008 and today reflect the focus on making Illinois a national leader in net zero actions that reduce carbon pollution. This year, one individual and one organization are being honored for their continued commitment and advocacy in advancing high performance, cutting-edge existing and new construction buildings.
“These leaders are laying the foundation necessary to decarbonize every building in Illinois by demonstrating net zero technology is feasible in any building and in any neighborhood,” said Brian Imus, Executive Director of Illinois Green. “These leaders are reducing carbon pollution in their community while improving health, comfort, and well-being and showing Illinois is a leader in net zero building design and technology.”
