Sustainable Leadership Awards Announced at CoreNet Global Summit

SAN ANTONIO, Texas, Nov. 22 - /EWire/ -- A Seattle building materials maker, a New York neighborhood and a Kansas City design firm are winners of this year's Sustainable Leadership Awards, presented by CoreNet Global at their Global Summit meeting in San Antonio in conjunction with International Interior Design Association and the American Institute of Architects.

Presentations were made to the Environmental Home Center of Seattle, the Battery Park City neighborhood in lower Manhattan, BNIM Architects in Kansas City and the Netherlands-based bank, ABN AMRO, for their commitment to sustainable design and development.

CoreNet Global, a 7500-member professional association of corporate real estate executives, presented the awards to for-profit companies and non-profit agencies whose commitment to sustainability and corporate social responsibility is exemplary.

In the small to mid-sized business category, the 12-year old Environmental Home Center, which makes and sells low-toxic paints, sustainably harvested wood products and more. The company received a Sustainable Leadership Award for providing resources and information for builders who want to build in an environmentally conscious manner.

Battery Park City is a 92-acre neighborhood that contains 5 million square feet of sustainable residential and commercial property in one of the most densely packed communities in the world. It was established under the auspices of the New York State Battery Park City Authority, a public benefit corporation, which established "Green Guidelines," to which buildings in the area must adhere. Battery Park City won a Sustainable Leadership Award under the non-profit/government category.

BNIM Architects of Kansas City best exemplify the principles of environmentally designed buildings and have been an industry leader for more than three decades. They were tapped in the architecture/interior architecture category for helping to write the LEED™ industry guidelines on sustainable projects and for developing technological advances within the industry and beyond.

Netherlands-based ABN AMRO is a leading international bank and received a Sustainable Leadership Award for founding the Equator Principles, a voluntary set of guidelines for determining, assessing and managing social and environmental risk in project financing. ABN AMRO was also the first signatory to the Carbon Disclosure Project, which will help to increase transparency about their best practice efforts relating to climate change.

The Sustainable Leadership Awards are sponsored by the International Interior Design Association, the American Institute of Architects/Committees on the Environment and Interior Architecture, and CoreNet Global. Tandus™, Johnson Controls, Haworth and Unicco underwrite the awards.

Alex Salmond is chock full of bigotry and prejudice against England but sadly talented at provoking the same in other Scots. I can barely watch him on TV as he hectors and postures. He is a bully towards interviewers and it makes me cringe; how embarassing to allow this man to speak for Scotland. He shows marked delusions of grandeur, both as an individual and on behalf of other Scots. I cannot see any evidence that Scotland is a great nation or that Scots are capable of taking their place on the world stage. Even Scottish broadsheets are poorly written and provincial. I have noticed that thick people in Scotland support Salmond and his frankly bizarre views. Have these people ever been to England? England is lovely. There is a reason that England is more densely populated than Scotland, and that&#8217;s because it is so nice. Lovely and temperate, and beautiful. And English people are lovely. Especially when they pronounce the words &#8216;paper&#8217;, &#8216;garden&#8217;, &#8216;flowers&#8217;, &#8216;tulips&#8217;; I could go on. Salmond is as thick as they come. He seems not to understand any of the issues, particularly economic ones. He is a purveyor of hatred and bile. If he sells us down the river with an independent Scotland I will never forgive him. I am also very annoyed by BBC Scotland for their biased reporting in favour of the Scottish Nationalist cause. Some balance, please! I am seeing very little intelligent comment to redress the balance. Who can wonder that the English are sick of us? I am mortified.

PhilAssuming RBS is a Scots bank then for starters they can pay the English Welsh and Northern Irish tax payers say £40bn to cover what non Scots have put in. The Civil Service functions could be moved back into non Scots territory as southerners need more job opportunities. Hospital buildings and motorways are presumably owned by the UK and should the Scots wish to use those north of the border, then the Scots government should be lessees at 90% of open market rental. As the oil revenues to Scotland continue to decline perhaps the Scots will rue the day when Salmond led them into the unknown. The real question is, will independence have a significant adverse effect on the rest of the UKâ??s economy. I wonder if there is anyone clever enough to help us understand the answer.Meanwhile we shall be regaled with an unending stream of emotional claptrap (driven partly by ill conealed nationalism) which wonâ??t help one jot.
