GE Award for Environmental Design
The Award for Environmental Design gives special recognition to those projects that minimize the use of energy, maximize the use of daylighting, control light pollution, and ensure system durability and maintainability. Previously called the Award for Sustainable Design, this award has been renamed to better reflect its focus on the creation of environmentally-sensitive lighting designs that respect the needs of people while showcasing the latest lighting system and control technologies.

Any project submitted to the GE Edison Awards program may also be considered for an Award for Environmental Design. These designs, while providing high-quality lighting that meets the criteria mentioned in Rules and Eligibility, should also demonstrate effective energy conservation, successfully integrate daylighting, ensure system durability and maintainability, control light pollution, or include other sustainability measures and innovative techniques and technologies that minimize impact on the environment.
The following additional requirements apply for projects being submitted for an Award for Environmental Design:
A separate, 1750-character (maximum, including spaces) project overview describing the challenges, needs and solutions relative to the sustainability aspect of the project.
