This year, the Council will give awards in two categories: High Performance Buildings and High Performance Initiatives. The Beyond Green™ 2007 High Performance Building Awards recognize the exceptional contributions made to sustainability across the United States.
With an integrated portfolio of high-performance building products and significant investment in Research and Development to continuously improve the performance of these materials, BASF continues to show how smart chemistry can help make buildings durable and energy-efficient with less impact on the environment.

"Through these partnerships, we can make significant inroads to reach our eventual goal of making sustainable building more and more mainstream."
SBIC is an independent, nonprofit organization whose mission is to advance the design, affordability, energy performance, and environmental soundness of America's buildings. Council membership is open to private and public organizations and individuals who share this mission. SBIC has led the way in defining a coherent 'whole building' approach to new building design.
