2019 Excellence in GSI Awards Ceremony

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.

On behalf of the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia (SBN), the GSI Partners recognized 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
