USGBC National Capital Region’s A Midsummer Night’s Green award winner

We are proud to announce that the DCRA Green Building Division team won the “Excellence in Government, Advocacy, or Policy” award at this year’s USGBC National Capital Region A Midsummer Night’s Green & Community Leaders Award ceremony.   

For seventeen years and counting, USGBC National Capital Region’s A Midsummer Night’s Green has brought together sustainability advocates from across the DC metro area to toast the best of the best in local green building. A Midsummer Night's Green features the announcement of the winners of our Community Leader Awards, which honor excellence in high-performance design, environmental stewardship and community impact.

The Green Building Division is recognized as a nationwide leader in Green Building and Energy Efficiency. Between enforcing the Green and Energy codes through rigorous plan review and inspections, this small but mighty team of sustainability professionals has launched several initiatives designed to move the green needle in the District. USGBC National Capital Chapter identified the Green Building Divisions introduction of the Districts first ever voluntary Net Zero Energy Program, designed to incentivize project teams focused on delivering net zero building in our community.
