Manila, Philippines – The Philippine Green Building Council invites its members and industry leaders to send in their nominations for the PHILGBC Leadership in Green Building Awards.

The PHILGBC Leadership in Green Building Awards showcase the achievements of businesses and innovators in the country that are leading the way on sustainability in buildings. The awards celebrate iconic green buildings, up-and-coming innovators and inspiring companies driving change and creating a better future throughout the Philippines.

Presented by the Philippine Green Building Council, this programme will recognise five winners across three award categories:

(1) The Business Leadership in Sustainability Award recognises companies which are truly integrating sustainability into their business models and contributing to the transition towards a sustainable built environment. These organisations understand that sustainability presents a long-term business opportunity, demonstrate sustainable practices within their internal and external operations, and show sustainability leadership within industry.

(2) The Leadership in Sustainable Design and Performance Award recognises pioneering green building projects that deliver a range of benefits through a holistic approach to sustainability. These projects go beyond simply minimising 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.

(3) 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 recognise 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 the country.

The deadline for the nominations in 25 May 2018.

Winners for the PHILGBC Leadership Awards in Green Building will be the country’s official nominees to compete for the WorldGBC Asia Pacific Awards in Green Building.
