LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA– December 16, 2021 – The historic Trust Building in downtown Los Angeles has won USGBC’s 2021 Sustainable Innovation Award in the Zero Waste and Circular Solutions category. Rising Realty Partners purchased and redeveloped this building with an interdisciplinary team involving ARG, Gensler, Morley Builders, and Gaia–a high-performance building consulting firm, helping the building achieve LEED Gold certification.

The Trust Building’s renovation process preserved over 95% of the historical Art Deco masterpiece while holding the embodied carbon, giving it a second life. According to McKinsey and Company, embodied carbon is a significant percentage of global emissions and requires urgent action to address it because it contains “all the greenhouse gas emissions associated with building construction, including those that arise from extracting, transporting, manufacturing, and installing building materials on-site, as well as the operational and end-of-life emissions associated with those materials.”
