London, UK – Since 2014, the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) Asia Pacific Leadership in Green Building Awards has showcased sustainable built environment leadership. To celebrate 20 years of WorldGBC, the prestigious awards will be celebrated during this organisation’s first Asia Pacific 2022 Festival.

Led by the WorldGBC Asia Pacific Network (APN) and the 15 Green Building Councils (GBCs) across the region, the awards contain three categories: 

1. Business Leadership in Sustainability Award: Recognises companies which embed climate action into their corporate DNA and create a positive impact towards their community, society as a whole and our planet.

2. Leadership in Sustainable Design and Performance Award: Presented to pioneering green building projects that are dedicated to advancing design leadership in climate action and climate justice, as well setting new benchmarks for the whole life carbon vision and human factors.

3. Women in Green Building Leadership Award: Celebrating the female trailblazers who are making extraordinary contributions to sustainable development, fueling ambitious young women and catalysing change. 

To reflect the rapid advancement of sustainable building in the region, the awards will focus on WorldGBC’s flagship Beyond the Business Case report and highlight solutions to address the three impact areas of the built environment: Climate Action, Health & Wellbeing and Resource & Circularity.

Cristina Gamboa, CEO, WorldGBC: “With WorldGBC marking 20 years of leadership of championing sustainable built environments for everyone, everywhere, the Asia Pacific region has the unparalleled opportunity to spotlight its leadership. 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.”

A range of regional leaders have been invited to the jury panel which will be announced in March 2022.

Award nominations open from 27 March - 15 July 2022. Finalists will be announced in October 2022, with the winners being recognised at an awards ceremony during the APN Festival in November 2022.
