Be the 2018 CaGBC Product of the Year

CaGBC is pleased to announce that the CaGBC 2018 Green Building Product of the Year Award competition is now open. The purpose of the award is to encourage Canadian companies to develop sustainable building products and materials, in order to better support the green building industry. For the third year, the Award is sponsored by UL Environment, an independent testing and certification organization that advances global sustainability by supporting the growth and development of environmentally preferable products, services and organizations.

Deadline is February 13 – CaGBC National members are eligible.

Product submissions are assessed based on four key areas: sustainability, transparency and verification, innovation, and application. Full criteria can be found by visiting the Product of the Year webpage. Entrants to the competition must be a CaGBC National member to apply, and the product must be manufactured or designed in Canada to be eligible (services and software not eligible).

The winner will receive the award at the Building Lasting Change 2018 Leadership Awards Gala in Toronto, as well as the opportunity to use an exclusive CaGBC Product of the Year crest on their website and in promotional materials.

The top entrants will also have a detailed case study featured on the CaGBC website, and will be asked to provide a short video (elevator pitch) about their product that will be shown to delegates at Building Lasting Change 2018. Further details will be given to the top three products chosen.

To view the submittal process and more about the Award, visit our Product of the Year webpage now. Already know you want to apply? Go straight to the application process now (please note: you must login or create an account before you begin the submission process).
