The Sustainable Building Awards reward the work done within the vast green building industry. From the pioneers to the rising stars, we look to commend the people who work tirelessly to ensure the global community decreases its collective carbon footprint. Due in part to incredible advancements in technology, in addition to sheer hard work, Sustainable Building has transformed into a billion-dollar industry which is making a difference in daily and future living.
Catching society unaware, the buildings in which we work, live and play were, and in some cases still are, doing long-term damage to the environment. Since the days of the global energy crisis in the 1960s -70s, a movement to provide ecologically aware buildings with long term solutions has existed. Yet it has only been recently that major cities from across the world are passing laws and commissioning green buildings, as leaders realise the need for reduction in carbon footprints.
As such, our goal is to highlight the work done in all areas of green building, from the advancements in sustainable building materials & designs, to utility usage, as well as waste & pollution reduction initiatives. We reveal the notable efforts of all involved in the planning, development and manifestation of the structures which will provide shelter for societies to come.
The Sustainable Building Awards are purely based upon merit and therefore provide a great marketing tool for winners to demonstrate their dedication to the field.
