For product and project awards, nominations should include a contact affiliated with the nominated product or project, organization, email, and phone number.

Nominations will be evaluated based on the impact the individual, product, or project has had on the sustainable laboratory community, based on the information provided in the nomination.

The recipients of the 2017 Go Beyond Awards will be recognized during an awards dinner at the 2017 I2SL Annual Conference in Boston, Massachusetts, and on I2SL's website.

Individuals Category

I2SL wishes to recognize those within I2SL's Community that are champions of the goals and mission of I2SL. Nominations should describe the individual's actions to increase awareness of the need for and importance of sustainable laboratory and other high-tech facilities and efforts to improve the energy or environmental performance of these types of facilities. Nominations can include testimonials from colleagues, descriptions of relevant awards, and other evidence of the nominee's efforts to make laboratory and other high-tech facilities more sustainable.

Products Category

Laboratory User Equipment

I2SL wishes to recognize products for users of laboratory and other high-tech facilities that support the energy and environmental performance of the facility, such as analytical equipment, growth chambers, refrigeration systems, and chemical inventory systems. Nominations must describe how the products have improved the energy and environmental performance of the facility. The use of quantitative data to describe the project's performance will make a more competitive nomination. Nominations should also include product testimonials from laboratory personnel.

Laboratory Building Products

I2SL wishes to recognize building products that support the energy and environmental performance of laboratory and other high-tech facilities, such as Building Information Models (BIM), Building Automation Systems (BAS), waste management and recovery, and hazardous disposal systems. Nominations must describe how the products have improved the energy and environmental performance of the laboratory or other high-tech facility. The use of quantitative data to describe the project's performance will make a more competitive nomination. Nominations should also include product testimonials from building operations and maintenance personnel.

Projects Category

I2SL wishes to recognize projects at laboratory and other high-tech facilities that demonstrate unique aspects of energy and environmental sustainability. This could include a new building, a major upgrade to an existing building, or a campus project. Though a LEED rating is notable, this alone may not be sufficient for a Go Beyond Award. Nominations will be evaluated on the technical value of the information. The use of quantitative data to describe the project's performance will make a more competitive nomination.

If you have any questions about the 2017 Go Beyond Awards, please contact I2SL.
