Balboa Park Sustainability Awards


The Balboa Park Sustainability Awards were introduced on October 21, 2014, at the first annual Sustainability Partners’ Breakfast, to  recognize and honor Balboa Park institutions that implement and complete an innovative sustainability project at their institution. These projects have been an impactful way for institutions to provide an educational gateway to topics on sustainability, and to also improve energy and water efficiency throughout building operations – creating a cleaner environment for staff and visitors.
