Sustainability Events

The theme for Earth Day 2021 is Restore Our Earth™, which focuses on natural processes, emerging green technologies, and innovative thinking that can restore the world’s ecosystems. In this way, the theme rejects the notion that mitigation or adaptation are the only ways to address climate change. It is up to each and every one of us to Restore Our Earth not just because we care about the natural world, but because we live on it. We all need a healthy Earth to support our jobs, livelihoods, health & survival, and happiness. A healthy planet is not an option — it is a necessity. 

In order to recognize the BOMA Building or Organization that best embodies the principles of Earth Day, BOMA Philadelphia and the Sustainability Committee are once again encouraging all members to submit an entry for the 2021 BOMA Philadelphia Earth Day Award!

We are adding something new this year!  Human health and wellness are foundational tenets of LEED, and over 70% of the credits in the rating system tie back directly to human health and wellness strategies. Showcase your pioneering green building projects that are leading the way in being resource efficient and providing healthy, productive spaces for their occupants and significant returns for their owners and investors.

Applicants are asked to submit this form as well as any appropriate backup, highlighting any environmental, sustainable and/or health & wellness projects that they have completed within their building. New and Existing Buildings can apply. Projects can include recycling programs, healthy food programs, air quality systems, sustainable energy practices, Greening or environmentally enhanced landscaping projects.

We want to see the environmental/sustainable/health & wellness project of which you are most proud.

The Sustainability Committee will then select one winner from a new construction project and one winner from an existing building we feel most embodies the Earth Day Concept.
