The World Green Building Council’s Asia Pacific Leadership in Green Building Awards showcase and celebrate the achievements of businesses and innovators in the region which are leading the way on sustainability in buildings.
The Awards are divided into two categories:
The Business Leadership in Sustainability Award rrecognises companies which are truly integrating sustainability into their business models and contributing to the transition towards a sustainable built environment. These organisations understand that sustainability presents a long-term business opportunity, demonstrate sustainable practices within their internal and external operations, and show sustainability leadership within industry.
The Leadership in Sustainable Design and Performance Award recognises pioneering green building projects that deliver a range of benefits through a holistic approach to sustainability. These projects go beyond simply minimising their impact by considering factors that lead to positive outcomes for both the environment and for people. There are three sub categories under this award: residential, commercial and institutional (schools, hospitals, etc.).
The awards are open to companies and green building projects of all sizes across the region. Nominations must be through recognised Green Building Councils in Asia Pacific countries.
60 per cent of the world’s population (4.3 billion people) live in the Asia Pacific region, with more than 2 billion living in urban areas - a figure that is set to reach 3.3 billion by 2050.
Set against this backdrop of growth, creating buildings that are low or zero carbon is essential to ensure a high quality of life for people, minimise negative impacts on the environment, and maximise economic opportunities.
The Awards are the only ones to recognise green building achievements across the whole of the Asia Pacific region. The 2014 Awards were hugely successful, with over 128 nominations from 15 countries in the region.
Raising their profile – Finalists and winners of the Awards will be profiled through WorldGBC’s global press work, social media and other communications activities.
Getting in front of the right people - Businesses and projects are judged by a group of renowned and highly influential figures in the green building industry.
Receiving recognition – The Awards are a chance to celebrate some of the most progressive businesses and projects in a hugely important region for the future of green building.
