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.
