International Institute for Substainable Laboratories

2018 Go Beyond Awards

The nomination period is now closed. Thank you for your submissions.

The Go Beyond Awards recognize excellence in sustainability in laboratory and other high-technology facilities, such as hospitals, data centers, and cleanrooms. The 2018 Go Beyond Awards will be handed out in three main categories:

Individuals Category

I2SL wishes to recognize individuals and groups of individuals within I2SL's Community that are champions of the goals and mission of I2SL. Nominations should describe how the individual(s) have raised 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

The products category includes two subcategories:

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.
