Environmental Leader Product & Project Awards Hall of Fame

Environmental Leader Product & Project Awards Hall of Fame

Congratulations to the Environmental Leader Product & Project Awards 2016 Winners.

Each year since the inception of the Environmental Leader Product and Project Awards program, the range and quality of the entries has risen. With the bar set high, the pool of 2016 entrants did not disappoint. The community of providers continues to address the rising demand for cost-effective solutions to address complex environmental, sustainability, and energy management challenges. And end-user organizations are becoming more creative in applying the available solutions to get real results.

The overall quality of the entries this year really stood out. Several judges who have been involved in the program for multiple years noted the trend towards higher-quality submissions, with a greater degree of innovation and demonstrated results.

Within this top-notch, diverse pool of entries, several themes among the winners emerged:

Manufacturers are using Design for Sustainability to reduce lifecycle impacts. About 25% of the winners were focused on how existing products or new products for existing applications were designed to be more resource-efficient throughout the product lifecycle, with significantly less material intensity in production, and lower energy, water and waste impacts during use.

Information technology is enabling smart solutions. More than in previous years, many of the entries are software products, or feature software components as part of a “smart” solution. This ranges from cloud-based software platforms to manage enterprise sustainability, to application of
Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data technologies to optimize energy management systems in real-time.

Energy management use cases remain prominent. Nearly a third of the winners were either products or projects focused on energy management, for industrial and commercial applications, as well as use in consumer settings. This isn’t surprising considering the tangible benefits and strong ROI that’s been demonstrated from energy efficiency initiatives.

The Environmental Leader Product & Project Awards have shown us once again that innovation is alive and well when it comes to solving thorny sustainability and environmental problems at global, regional, facility, and individual consumer levels. We congratulate these winning companies for their achievements in enabling a more sustainable world across environmental, financial and social dimensions.
