About the BOMA San Francisco Earth Award Program

The BOMA San Francisco EARTH Award recognizes member buildings that utilize the most comprehensive resource management programs, including commercial recycling programs, energy and water conservation efforts, air quality and toxics reduction programs, support for public transportation, and effective use of tenant education programs geared to promoting sustainability practices in commercial office buildings. The EARTH Award program is an opportunity for BOMA members to consider the entire spectrum of programs and practices that constitute an effective 'sustainability program' for office buildings including what policies and procedures should be adopted that can help move a property toward becoming 'green'. 

Every year, the BOMA San Francisco EARTH Awards program increases in popularity and represents a larger cross-section of commercial real estate properties in the City.  As such, the workshop allows BOMA members the opportunity to consult with previous Earth Award recipients and ask questions regarding the Earth Award application, and to converse with associate members who could help with resource sustainability and, at the same time, help members increase their comparative advantage in the judging process.
