The Sustainability Practices Award recognizes individuals, programs, agencies and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to promote sustainability in public works. The Chapter established the Julian Prize for Sustainability in 2004 to promote the role of public works in furthering the principles of sustainability. The award is intended to recognize systems thinking, long term design practices, and infrastructure systems that sustain society.
Sustainability is accomplished by the efficient and cost effective delivery of infrastructure in an environmentally and socially responsible way that ensures the best choice in the long term. Up to two Sustainability Practices Awards are presented annually in the following categories: individual or program/agency/organization. This award is sponsored by the Sustainability Committee.
