The awards are open to companies and green building projects of all sizes across the region. Nominations must be through recognised Green Building Councils in Asia Pacific countries.


Why are the Awards significant?

  • 60% of the world’s population (4.3 billion people) live in the Asia Pacific region, with more than 2 billion living in urban areas - a figure that is set to reach 3.3 billion by 2050.
  • Set against this backdrop of growth, creating buildings that are low or zero carbon is essential to ensure a high quality of life for people, minimise negative impacts on the environment, and maximise economic opportunities.
  • The Awards are the only ones to recognise green building achievements across the whole of the Asia Pacific region. The 2016 Awards were hugely successful, with over 100 nominations from 15 countries in the region.

Why should businesses or projects enter?

  • Raising their profile – Finalists and winners of the Awards will be profiled through WorldGBC’s global press work, social media and other communications activities.
  • Getting in front of the right people - Businesses and projects are judged by a group of renowned and highly influential figures in the green building industry.
