Frequently Asked Questions

Questions about Green Building Awards or LEED plaques in general? You'll likely find the answer here!

For further assistance, please contact LEED@eclipseawards.com or call 888-294-7121.

1. What do I need to order LEED plaques or LEED decals?

To order additional LEED plaques or LEED decals requires the unique 5-digit Project Number assigned to you by CaGBC upon your LEED certification approval. For reference, your Project Number is included with your initial LEED plaque. If you require assistance with your Project Number, please contact LEED@eclipseawards.com

Commercial LEED plaques display the year and level of certification in both English and French, however no personalization is possible. The same is true for LEED Canada for Homes plaques. 

2. What is your standard lead time? 

Standard lead time is 6-8 weeks on all LEED plaque and LEED decal orders. Rush services of 2 weeks and 5 weeks are available as options if you require faster delivery. 

3. What is Green Building Awards?

Green Building Awards is a division of Eclipse Awards International Inc that designs recognition awards to recognize leadership in green building and sustainable building practices. Eclipse Awards is a boutique trophy shop and manufacturer of eco-friendly recognition awards, premium crystal awards, custom crystal trophies, engraved wall plaques, signs, decals, and handmade nature jewelry.  Founded in Vancouver, BC in 1998, Eclipse Awards was recognized as BC's Best Employer in 2012 and BC's Best Green Business in 2014.

4. How do you pack your shipments?

All Green Building Awards shipments originating from Eclipse Awards are carbon neutral. We use either biodegradable packing, or packaging that has been reused and repurposed from other shipments. 

5. What are your environmental and sustainability commitments?

Eclipse Awards considers the environmental impacts and durability of the materials we use and the services we offer. Green Building Awards is both solar powered and bullfrog powered with 100% green energy, green gas and green hydro. We have also been Climate Smart Certified 7 times and we are carbon neutral via offsets from Brinkman Climate and tree planting with Eden Reforestation Projects (as of August 2021 we have planted over 35,000 trees)! All LEED plaques and LEED decals produced by Eclipse Awards are carbon neutral and will not add to your carbon footprint! 

In 2019 we installed a 2.56 kW photovoltaic solar panel system on our rooftop, which generates clean solar energy to power our laser engraver and other equipment! Click here for a real-time view of the energy produced by our solar panels and to learn more about our journey to solar power.
