Carrier Sponsors EBie Awards

FARMINGTON, Conn. — Carrier will serve as the lead sponsor for Urban Green Council’s EBie Awards™, a new juried awards competition to select and highlight best practices in greening existing buildings. The event will be held at the Hard Rock Cafe Live Theatre in New York, with winners revealed live from the 18 finalists.

“Carrier and United Technologies have a long tradition of innovative technologies for improving the energy efficiency of existing buildings,” said John Mandyck, chief sustainability officer, UTC Climate, Controls, and Security. “We love the EBies because they do just that – they show us what can be done in our largest opportunity area.”

The EBies are a program of Urban Green Council, which aims to lead the advancement of sustainability in urban buildings through education, advocacy, and research. The EBie awards program was started this year to recognize significant increased environmental performance in existing buildings, among building operators, facilities managers, owners, engineers, retro-commissioning agents, and other professionals who conceived and implemented the work. Focus areas include energy, water, operations, lighting, and landscaping, as well as effective energy use education.

“The goal of the EBies is to do for existing building retrofits what the Oscars did for film,” said Russell Unger, executive director, Urban Green Council. “We want to encourage and recognize excellence throughout the industry. There are many people doing incredible work in existing buildings and going totally unnoticed. With Carrier’s help, the EBies are going to change that.”
