We are excited to announce that the Utility Management Advisory has created a Sustainability and Innovation award, which will recognize our members and other colleagues for their contributions in our industry!
The first award will be given out in early 2021 (at the annual Energy Summit), and we plan for the award to be awarded annually going forward.
Here are the details:
The UMA Sustainability and Innovation Award provides the opportunity for your organization to receive global recognition for making sustainability innovation an integral part of your business.
The award will celebrate excellence in energy, water and / or trash management, as well as projects demonstrating measurable enhancements in sustainability practices.
Eligible projects may arise from activities within the organization, as part of government/utility provider initiatives or as part of a product or projects initiated on existing or new development multifamily properties.
Projects may be for a specific property or portfolio / companywide.
Examples of eligible projects include but are not limited to:
- Retrofit or installation project resulting in increased NOI
- Companywide sustainability program rollout
- Implementing new technology that positively impacts residents
- Resident recycling program
- New trash technology rollout
- Audit resulting in change of operating procedures
Winners will be chosen annually by volunteer judges who are leaders and experts in the multifamily industry.
We are accepting submissions now through January 10, 2021, so please be sure to enter a project or initiative from your company.
