Description

Jakarta, 6 February 2018

After 2014 and 2016 event, The WorldGBC Asia Pacific Leadership in Green Building Awards is back to showcase and celebrate the achievements of businesses and innovators in the region which are leading the way on sustainability in buildings.

Same as the previous year, there are two categories:

  • The Business Leadership in Sustainability Award recognizes companies which are truly integrating sustainability into their business models and contributing to the transition towards a sustainable built environment. These companies 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 recognizes pioneering green building projects that deliver a range of benefits through a holistic approach to sustainability. These projects go beyond simply minimizing 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 public.

 

And one new category which is The Women in Green Building Leadership Award:

  • The Women in Green Building Leadership Award is a new award presented to an inspiring female leader in our movement. In a traditionally male-dominated industry, we want to recognize the pivotal role that women play in nurturing and activating their communities, and delivering change.

 

The awards are open to companies and green building projects of all sizes across Indonesia.

Why are the Awards significant?

  • 60% of the world’s population (4.3 billion people) lives 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, minimize negative impacts on the environment, and maximize economic opportunities.
  • The Awards are the only ones to recognize green building achievements across the whole of the Asia Pacific region. The 2016 Awards were hugely successful, with over 100 nominations from 15 countries in the region.

 

Why should businesses or projects enter?

  • 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.
