McKinstry Names “Champions of Sustainability” Winners At 2019 WOHESC Conference

Three higher education sustainability leaders recognized for championing sustainability in the built environment.

SEATTLE (Feb. 26, 2019) — McKinstry, a national leader in designing, constructing, operating and maintaining high-performing buildings, today honored three university educators as Champions of Sustainability for their dedication to promoting sustainability in the built environment.

The program recognizes organizations and individuals exhibiting a forward-looking approach to innovative energy and waste reduction in the built environment, which accounts for one-third of the world’s energy usage and more than 47 percent of carbon emissions.

Ellen Moore of the University of Washington, Tacoma, Katrina Taylor of Tacoma Community College and Troy Builta of Mt. Hood Community College were each honored as champions today at the 2019 Washington & Oregon Higher Education Sustainability Conference (WOHESC).

“We congratulate Troy, Katrina and Ellen for their inspiring leadership in championing sustainability,” said McKinstry Chief Market Officer Ash Awad. “Our built environment can and should do more to serve higher education. The world of higher education is filling that need by saving energy and cutting waste. We at McKinstry are proud to work alongside leaders like these to make a difference on campuses across the country.”

The 2019 Champions of Sustainability awards are presented in collaboration with the annual Washington & Oregon Higher Education Sustainability Conference (WOHESC). More information about WOHESC can be found at www.wohesc.org.
