BCSD Singapore named jury at APAC Green Building Leadership Awards

The World Green Building Council launched the inaugural Asia Pacific Regional Network Leadership Awards in Green Building.

The biennial awards program will honor outstanding organisations for their commitment to sustainability, and celebrates innovative green building projects that are reducing carbon emissions and other environmental impacts, cutting costs and driving higher levels of health and productivity for building occupants.

The awards, presented by the WorldGBC Asia Pacific Network in partnership with the World Bank Group’s International Finance Corporation and the Business Council for Sustainable Development Singapore, follows on from the success of similar global and European awards hosted by the WorldGBC, which honor leaders, innovators and champions in sustainability and green building.

The WorldGBC Asia Pacific Regional Network Leadership Awards in Green Building features two categories:

Business Leadership in Sustainability: presented to the corporation which best demonstrates a commitment to sustainability as part of its core business model. The award acknowledges leadership in corporate social responsibility, with emphasis on policies and programs that reduce and reverse the impact of business practices on the environment.

Leadership in Sustainable Design and Performance: recognizes a green building project that demonstrates innovation in achieving minimum impact on the environment and maximum impact on health and productivity.
