Architect Hailed For His Designs Integrating Social and Environmental Themes

Sep. 29 /CSRwire/ - CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - William McDonough, Visiting Professor of Business Administration at The Darden School and former dean of the University of Virginia's School of Architecture, is the recipient of Columbia Business School's prestigious 2003 Botwinick Prize in Ethical Practice in the Professions.

McDonough, a member of the Darden faculty since 1999, received the award in recognition of his leadership in the areas of sustainable development and the environment in business and design. The award will be bestowed on October 7 at a ceremony in New York City.

"We're proud that Bill has been recognized once again for his innovative leadership in integrating sustainable development and environmental issues into business," says Darden Dean Robert S. Harris. "His work reflects one of Darden's core values--a commitment to shape business practice in an increasingly complex world."

McDonough consults with leaders of industry, non-government organizations, and governments and is the founding principal of William McDonough + Partners and McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry, two internationally recognized design firms practicing ecologically, socially and economically intelligent design at scales ranging from molecules, to products, to buildings, communities, cities, and regions. Well-known for his leadership in these areas, McDonough has received several awards including the Presidential Award for Sustainable Business presented by President Bill Clinton in 1996.

Each year the Botwinick Prize recognizes an outstanding leader who exhibits the highest standard of ethical conduct in business. This is the first year that a designer has won the award.

Past recipients include Howard Schultz, chairman and chief global strategist of Starbucks Coffee Company; Henry Kravis, founding partner of Kohlberg, Kravis Roberts & Company and founder and chairman of the New York City Investment Fund; J. Michael Cook, former chairman and chief executive officer of Deloitte & Touche LLP; Anita Roddick, chief executive officer of The Body Shop; Jeffrey Swartz, president and chief executive officer of The Timberland Company; and Russell Carson, General Partner, Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe.
