The SOM-designed U.S. Embassy in Beijing is the winner of a 2013 Greening Diplomacy Initiative Award, bestowed by the Department of State. The award aims to improve the environmental sustainability of the Department of State’s global operations and to encourage foreign embassies in Washington, D.C., to do the same. Advanced by the department’s Greening Council in 2009, the award challenges the department to develop and implement policies and actions that lessen its overall environmental footprint, reduce costs, and ensure sustainability remains at the forefront of U.S. foreign policy.
