  •     Green Building: Patrick commissioned the first state-owned, net-zero building at North Shore Community College in Danvers, completed in 2011.
  •     Land Conservation: Since taking office, his Administration has made a historic investment of more than $300 million to conserve more than 100,000 acres.
  • “Throughout his public service to the people of Massachusetts, Patrick has made greening the environment a cornerstone of his political and policy agenda,” said Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO and Founding Chair, U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). USGBC’s LEED green building program is the most widely recognized green building program across the globe, with over 50,000 projects spread across 135 countries (http://www.usgbc.org). “In 2012 alone, 106 projects earned LEED certification in Massachusetts, totaling more than 13 million square feet of greener, healthier building space.”

    “We appreciate Governor Patrick’s efforts to cut dangerous air pollution from the state’s remaining coal-fired plants and to advance innovative, clean energy solutions like offshore wind. Under his leadership, Massachusetts is becoming a national leader in the transition toward a clean energy economy, and we look forward to continuing to work with him to clean up the air in New England and to make the region the nation’s leading clean energy development hub,” said Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune.

    “Thanks to Governor Patrick’s courage and grit,” said Lex Heslin, “other state, local and even national policymakers will be able to point to his success and implement proven solutions faster – and with less risk.”

    Last year’s award went to Peter Shumlin (D), Governor of Vermont, with the inaugural award having gone to Arnold Schwarzenegger (R), then Governor of California.
