Presented by the World Green Building Council and its Asia Pacifc Regional Network of Green Building Councils, this biennial programme recognises four award winners across two categories.
The Business Leadership in Sustainability Award rewards companies that challenge 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 public buildings.
According to WorldGBC’s Chief Executive Offcer, Terri Wills, nominations from 11 countries were submitted in 2016, refecting the growing infuence of sustainable design, construction and operations on business leadership.

“We applaud each fnalist for showing how sustainability can help nations cut carbon emissions and costs, while creating healthy, liveable places for people.”
