2020 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

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

Our 2020 Award Ceremony was postponed due to Covid-19, and is rescheduled for 2021. For more information please reach out to [email protected]
