SUSTAINABILITY AWARD APPLICATION

APPA's Sustainability Award in Facilities Management is designed to recognize and advance sustainability excellence in educational facilities. This is APPA's newest award and is reflective of APPA's "Sustainability Statement" and was introduced for the first time in the 2012 annual award cycle. This award recognizes the facilities management department that has integrated sustainable policies and "green" practices throughout all facets of the organization and embedded them within the educational institution.

All entries must include:

  1. Completed application form.
  2. An introductory abstract of no more than 200 words.
  3. Narrative of no more than five pages each for the seven criteria described below or available to view in this downloadable document.
  4. A list of supporting materials for each of the seven criteria. This is simply a listing of the documentation that supports statements made in the narrative. DO NOT INCLUDE THE ACTUAL DOCUMENTS WITH YOUR SUBMISSION. Instead, you should be prepared to make the listed documents available electronically to evaluators upon request.

Successful applicants will demonstrate the ability to look at the organization as a whole, focus on what is important to the enterprise, with the goal of improving overall performance and leadership in sustainable initiatives.

When addressing the criteria, applicants should emphasize results, creating value, exceeding customer needs, and identifying key linkages. More specific points relate to each of the seven criteria areas provided on the Sustainability Award web page or are available for download. Entries are judged on a one thousand (1000) point system based on the four major APPA competencies blended with academic and sustainability performance result elements.
