Chandler, AZ (PRWEB) March 10, 2012

Chandler-Gilbert Community College was recently named as a finalist in the Second Nature Climate Leadership Awards, which recognizes Innovation and Excellence in Climate Leadership at Signatory Institutions of the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment.

CGCC President, Dr. Linda Lujan credits students, faculty, and staff with the success of the college’s sustainability initiatives.

“We are excited to be named a finalist for this award because it recognizes the innovation and dedication of students, faculty, and staff to our commitment of sustainability,” said Lujan. “As a college we are focused on leading by example, examining the social, economic, and environmental impacts associated with all that we do in order to continually improve our college, empower our students, and strengthen our communities, while minimizing our impact on the environment.”

The college was nominated for implementing initiatives in college operations, instructional activities, outreach, and assessment and research.

Some college operational initiatives include instituting a charter for all new construction to meet minimum LEED Silver certification, purchasing renewable energy from Salt River Project, installing new cooling towers and high efficiency chiller system, retrofitting all light fixtures with electronic ballasts/T8 lamps, retrofitting campus restrooms with waterless urinals saving an estimated 340,000 gallons annually, utilizing reclaimed water on the college’s Pecos Campus, serving all irrigation needs, and committing to a year-long paper reduction campaign committed to reducing paper use by 10 percent.

Instructional initiatives include increasing the number of existing environmental science course offerings and implementing a Sustainability & Ecological Literacy Certificate, incorporating sustainability topics into required orientation sessions for all incoming students, creating learning community courses around sustainability topics, practicing green chemistry in college classrooms, beginning construction of an Environmental Technology Center and Garden – a learning space powered by alternative energy and modeling sustainable building concepts, and demonstrating national leadership for sustainability with presentations at the Institute on Sustainability at Harvard University, League for Innovation Sustainability Institute, Association for Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education, and the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development.

Ongoing outreach activities include partnerships with Girl Scouts and elementary schools to engage in sustainable gardening projects, inclusion of sustainability topics in community education courses, a service learning partnership with the Riparian Institute in the Town of Gilbert, and a partnership with local utilities for solar demonstration and CFL light bulbs distribution.

Assessment and research include an employee trip reduction survey with results used to begin formulating reduction strategies, and a transportation study performed by students who worked in partnership with the college’s Institutional Research department.

The Climate Leadership Awards highlight campus innovation and climate leadership to transition society to a clean, just, and sustainable future.

Partners by DESIGN incorporated wins Design Firm of the Year for the third time at the 2012 Chicago Commercial Real Estate Awards

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 09, 2012

Partners by DESIGN incorporated (PBD), a Chicago-based interior planning, design and architecture firm, won the Interior Design Firm of the Year Award at the 24th Annual Chicago Commercial Real Estate Awards, benefiting the Greater Chicago Food Depository. This is PBD’s fifth nomination and third win in the Interior Design Firm of the Year category. PBD won the award in 2007 and tied in 2011.

This year’s Chicago Commercial Real Estate Awards winners were announced at the Awards Dinner, presented by Associated Bank and Crain’s Chicago Business, on Thursday, March 8, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago.

“I’m thrilled to see our team’s hard work recognized by their peers and the industry as a whole,” said Ron Carlson, PBD founder and CEO. “It’s a privilege to be part of a group that has had such a central role in real economic revitalization this year in Chicago.”

Panelists and voters, comprised of previous year award winners and real estate professionals, evaluated the project submissions on a range of criteria, including commercial success, project complexity, innovative problem solving and community and environmental impact.

PBD submitted three local projects, completed within 2011: a 1.25 million square foot project for Navistar, a 96,000 square foot project for Coyote Logistics and a 28,550 square foot project for HIMSS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society).

The Navistar project highlighted all phases of PBD’s tailored design services. PBD redesigned the entire 88-acre Lisle, Ill. campus, once home to Alcatel-Lucent, converting an IT work environment to the corporate, planning and R&D function of Navistar’s global headquarters . PBD also designed and constructed two ground-up buildings on the campus. For the renovation phase, PBD oversaw the master planning and design of Navistar’s corporate offices, truck bays, testing facilities, museum and customer welcome center.

HIMSS, a non-profit organization focused on healthcare IT and management systems, hired PBD to assist with the relocation and redesign of their Chicago offices. PBD led the renovation of an existing commercial office space, creating collaborative work environments and a rotunda to reinforce HIMSS’ culture and mission.

With Coyote Logistics, PBD spearheaded the design phase of the company’s relocation from Lake Forest, Ill. to the third and fourth floors of Chicago’s Green Exchange Building—the country’s largest sustainable business community committed to environmental responsibility and positive social impact. PBD incorporated sustainable “best practices” through all phases of the project’s development.

The Charles Bronfman Prize Awards $100,000 to Dr. Alon Tal, Israeli Environmentalist

The Charles Bronfman Prize Awards $ 100,000 to Dr. Alon Tal, Israeli Environmentalist

Jerusalem, Israel (PRWEB) January 11, 2006

The Charles Bronfman Prize, a $ 100,000 humanitarian award, named Dr. Alon Tal, Founder and Director of Research for the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies and the Israel Union for Environmental Defense, the 2005 recipient at a ceremony in Jerusalem, on January 10, 2006.

Tal, 45, has challenged and helped reshape Israel’s environmental policies. He was recently appointed by the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs to join the government’s delegation to the United Nations for Combating Desertification.

In 1996, Tal founded the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies on Kibbutz Ketura. Set up under the auspices of Tel Aviv University, he recruited students throughout the Middle East. The Institute has established itself amongst the region’s primary pipelines for environmentalists. Today, eighty percent of its graduates hold key regional environmental positions.

A dozen Jordanian protégés of Dr. Tal attended the Prize ceremony in support of their unifying mentor. Earlier in the day, they met with officials from the Ministry of Environment to discuss pressing issues of the day.

At age 29, Tal founded Adam Teva V’din, the Israel Union for Environmental Defense, to fight for Israeli environmental rights. Considered Israel’s most effective environmental organization, it has won countless legal actions, garnered more stringent regulations, tougher enforcement policies, and increased environmental initiatives.

Dr. Tal was unanimously voted chairman of Life and Environment, an umbrella group for Israel’s environmental community. The organization initiates national environmental projects and under his stewardship, has grown from 24 to 80 member organizations.

Charles Bronfman praised Tal, the Prize’s second recipient: “I am so grateful that my children established this prize. Alon Tal epitomizes its true spirit. His life has been an impressive tapestry of initiatives sewn together to better the world, reflecting the best of Jewish and universal values alike. Through his profound commitment, he has inspired Israelis and others throughout the Mideast to find common ground in preserving the region’s environmental health. He set out to change the world, and he has done so, impacting not only our world today but the world we shall leave behind for the next generation.”

Accepting the Prize, Tal said, “Israelis are tremendously committed to the environment. We can move mountains if optimism motivates us.”

“In addition,” Tal continued, “The Prize provides a once-in-a-life-time philanthropic opportunity to create a foundation to support Israeli grassroots activists who face emergency situations, fulfilling a lifelong dream.”

In 1994, Tal was a member of the initial Israeli environmental delegation to attend a conference for NGO’s in the Arab world. The first regional environmental initiative was organized under his direction, and now is called Friends of the Earth, Middle East. Its leadership includes Israeli, Palestinian, and Jordanian representatives.

Chair of an international panel of judges who selected Tal as the 2005 Prize recipient from an international field of candidates, James D. Wolfensohn said, “Dr. Tal has clearly demonstrated the exciting breadth of possibilities in the Middle East when Arabs and Israelis work together for the good of the region and its shared resources. His work proves that joint efforts can yield benefits far beyond those accomplished by working alone. His selection as Prize winner should encourage us all.”

One of his nominators, Dov Khenin, Chairman of Life and Environment, noted: “Even though he is only 45, Alon has managed to start or transform many of the leading environmental institutions in Israel. One can see the impact in coastlines that have been preserved, industrial discharge permits that have been toughened and enforced, and open spaces that have been preserved. Four environmental laws that he wrote have passed the Knesset and he has influenced many court precedents.”

The Charles Bronfman Prize Foundation, a United States 501(c)(3) corporation headquartered in New York, administers The Charles Bronfman Prize. Ellen Bronfman Hauptman and Andrew Hauptman and Claudine Blondin Bronfman and Stephen Bronfman, founded the Prize in honor of their father’s 70th birthday. They are co-chairs of the Foundation.
