CitySwitch Awards

CitySwitch Awards

CitySwitch Hall of Fame

In 2018 we introduced a new category for standout collegues whose efforts on sustainability action deserve recognition.  If you know of an outstanding individual or team, you can nominate them through the annual progress report by completing the new section provided to nominate individuals and teams.  You'll simply need to tell us who and why the individual or team deserves to enter the Hall of Fame.

Once reporting is complete, we will notify nominees of their status as CitySwitch Sustainability Champions, and invite them to the award's ceremony where they will be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

work with CitySwitch to improve their tenancy’s environmental performance.
