After two years of virtual events, the 2022 Sustainability Awards were back in their original and popular live format, this time at Sydney’s Shangri-La hotel. 

The 250-strong crowd celebrated the year’s most outstanding people, projects and products in the world of sustainable built design, recognising the contribution that these exemplars have made to the ongoing betterment of our environment. With rapid change needed across the country and the globe, it has never been more important to elevate pioneering design to the national stage, promoting the talent, innovation and technology that will move Australia toward net zero.

In terms of these, our 16th annual awards, we cannot stress how important it is to have these awards in a live format and as such, it goes without saying that the winners were also highly appreciative in being back in our ‘old’ format.

Throughout the evening, 16 winners and 10 honourable mentions were celebrated, with master of ceremonies Peter Colqhoun inviting some of Australia’s leading talents to the stage to accept their awards. 

With COP27 happening and the realisation by many in the world that we have been living unsustainably for so long, the need to use our powers of design to at least minimise our carbon footprint has never been clearer than before.

Insofar as the night goes, there are so many people to thank for the success of this year’s Sustainability Awards. We’d would like to thank the 2022 Jury, led by Dick Clarke, for their unwavering support of the event, and the time and expertise they bring not only to judging, but also to guiding the program and ensuring its continued place as Australia’s most celebrated sustainable built design awards.

The 2022 Sustainability Awards, and the Sustainability Summit (held immediately before the Awards at the Shangri-La and online), have been made possible thanks to our official event sponsors: Best of the Best and Carbon Neutral Partner Autex Acoustics, and category partners Big Ass Fans, BlueScope, Bondor, Electrolux, ForestOne, GH Commercial, Holcim, Kaolin, Network Architectural, Next Timber by Timberlink, Sika, Siniat, Stormtech, Verosol and Wood Solutions
