The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and its president, CEO, and founding chairman, Rick Fedrizzi, were recognized with the National Building Museum’s 2009 Honor Award at the museum’s recent annual gala.

The award acknowledges leadership on environmental issues and significant accomplishments made in improving sustainability within the built environment. 

“It’s an honor to be recognized amongst many visionary leaders in the sustainability moment, and by an organization that has exhibited continued leadership within the built environment,” Fedrizzi said. “The green-building movement offers an opportunity to respond to the most-important challenges of our times, and we remain single-mindedly committed to delivering on our vision of green buildings for everyone within a generation.”

The Honor Award was established by the National Building Museum in 1986 to recognize significant contributions to an improved built environment. Other honorees included Mayor Richard M. Daley and the City of Chicago; Majora Carter; and Louis Chênevert and United Technologies (UTC).

The National Building Museum is dedicated to exploring and celebrating architecture, design, engineering, construction, and planning.
