Nominations now open for WorldGBC Asia Pacific Leadership in Green Building Awards 2020

Monday 06th April 2020

 

Today, the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) has officially opened nominations for its prestigious WorldGBC Asia Pacific Leadership in Green Building Awards 2020.

The biennial Awards, first held in 2014, celebrate buildings pushing the envelope in sustainability, inspiring companies that have integrated sustainability into the core of their operations, and women leadership in the green building space.

Presented by WorldGBC and its Asia Pacific Regional Network of Green Building Councils (GBCs), the awards will recognise six winners across three award categories:

The Business Leadership in Sustainability Award rewards companies that push boundaries, integrate sustainability into their business models and make an outstanding contribution to a sustainable built environment.

The Leadership in Sustainable Design and Performance Award is presented to pioneering green building projects that set new benchmarks for sustainability. There are three sub-category winners for residential, commercial and institutional buildings.

The Women in Green Building Leadership Award, was presented for the first time in 2018 to an inspiring female leader in our movement. In a traditionally male-dominated industry, we want to recognise the pivotal role that women play in nurturing and activating their communities, and delivering change.

Additionally, to reflect the growing momentum of our global projects Better Places for People and Advancing Net Zero, we have special recognitions for businesses and projects that have gone above and beyond. The Better Places for People Special Recognition will be awarded to companies that have truly embraced health and wellbeing practices; and the Advancing Net Zero Special Recognition will be awarded to projects that have demonstrated an ambitious and holistic solution to achieving net zero operational carbon emissions.

Cristina Gamboa, CEO, World Green Building Council said: “The Asia Pacific region has the unparalleled opportunity to share with the world its journey in securing low carbon and sustainable built environments. We look forward to receiving high quality nominations from industry leaders and groundbreaking infrastructure projects that demonstrate the viability of these much-needed solutions for both people and planet, whilst inspiring all of us to deliver them at scale.”  

The nominations open today, 6 April and will close on 1 August, with finalists announced on 2 October, ahead of the awards ceremony, which is currently planned to take place at Indonesia GBC’s conference in late November/early December. The 2020 awards jury panel will be announced in May.
