USGBC Announces 2019 Greenbuild Europe Leadership Awards.

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) announced adidas and Knauf Insulation as the recipients of the 2019 Greenbuild Europe Leadership Awards. The Leadership Awards recognize outstanding individuals and organizations at the forefront of the green building movement. The recipients were announced today at USGBC's Greenbuild Europe conference taking place in Amsterdam at the Movenpick Hotel.

"Both adidas and Knauf have demonstrated courage and purposeful intent --tirelessly championing green building, pushing to transform the environment and helping to improve the quality of life for people in their communities," said Mahesh Ramanujam, president and CEO, of USGBC and Green Business Certification, Inc. (GBCI). "With these types of leaders, I know our vision of green buildings for all within this generation can become a reality. This award recognizes their outstanding contributions to protecting the environment--both for people today and for future generations."

adidas is being recognized for its outstanding contributions to protecting the environment including the company's commitment to LEED and reducing its carbon footprint. Adidas's progressive sustainability roadmap and campaign "Sport Needs a Space," includes a holistic approach that looks at spaces where sport is made (all places where products are created, designed, manufactured and shipped), sold (own retail, wholesale and e-commerce) and played (from the indoor court to the outdoor pitch all over the world).

Knauf Insulation is being recognized for providing innovative solutions that both reduce energy consumption and save resources.
