In the seven months since the Sustainability Awards announced their 2019 winner, we have seen momentous disruption to our industry and the wider community, both domestically and internationally. As such sustainability and environmentally-sustainable design has not been immune from the huge shifts we have seem both at home and abroad.
However, while news on the climate has somewhat slowed down during the global pandemic, the fact remains that sustainable design is now more important than ever, both environmentally and economically.
With that said, we are excited to see entries open to the 2020 Sustainability Awards.
Now in its 14th year of Architecture & Design running the awards, this year there will be 16 categories, some of which will include brand-new categories such as Sustainable Emerging Architect / Designer, Smart Building and Urban & Landscape.
Along with those changes, this year there will be seven Ambassadors for the awards in addition to the seven esteemed jury members. Once again the Sustainability Awards is at the forefront of the industry and its needs.
This year, for the first time ever, the awards night will be held in Melbourne realising the programme’s constant desire to recognise and reward the pinnacle of sustainable design in Australia.
During the day, the Sustainability Summit will bring together the highest calibre of ideas and innovation and we are all invited and encouraged to be an integral part of it.
