The new A+Sustainability Awards seek to celebrate architecture and design firms who are actively working towards a more sustainable built environment, wherever they may be based and whatever challenges or opportunities are inherent within each project.

Eligibility for these categories takes into consideration local characteristics, while rewarding projects that push the envelope and form a positive precedent for greener building practices in its specific region and the wider world.
