ARTBA Seeks Nominations for Environmental Awards

October 21, 2014

The American Road & Transportation Builders Association Transportation Development Foundation (ARTBA-TDF) is now accepting nominations for its 2015 Globe Awards program. The annual competition recognizes surface transportation projects and transportation construction firms that utilize exemplary environmental processes to protect or enhance the natural environment.

The Globe Awards competition is structured into two categories—project awards and process awards.

The Project Awards recognizes private-sector firms and public-sector transportation agencies that do an outstanding job in protecting and/or enhancing the natural environment in the planning, design and construction of U.S. transportation infrastructure projects. Nominations may be made for projects in the following seven categories: highways, local or secondary roads, bridges, public transit, airports, railroads­, and waterways and ports.

The Process Awards honors companies that have exhibited environmentally responsible manufacturing, production, resource extraction or other processes related to surface transportation construction. Such organizations may include:

  • Heavy construction equipment and transportation safety product manufacturers (environmentally responsible manufacturing); or
  • Materials companies (environmentally responsible resource extraction and/or production).

Nominations must be submitted online at by January 30. Winners will be recognized during ARTBA’s Federal Issues Program, April 13 to 15 in Washington, D.C.
