It has today been announced that the 2018 BREEAM Awards, the leading awards for sustainability within the global built environment, has joined forces with ecobuild. The awards will also feature the 2018 GRESB awards, rewarding excellence in property investment.
As the internationally-recognised measure of sustainability for buildings and communities, BREEAM is used worldwide as a standard for driving sustainable change across the built environment. With ecobuild sharing fresh thinking, innovative technologies and materials focusing on the sustainability agenda, the alignment of the two events represents a natural sharing of goals by two like-minded, influential organisations.
“We are delighted to announce that the 2018 BREEAM Awards has partnered with ecobuild,” commented Gavin Dunn at BREEAM. “The two brands have so much synergy, each playing their part in helping companies, senior professionals and influencers across property, architecture, construction and engineering, demonstrate best practice through sustainability.”
“Since the 2017 event, we’ve started a dialogue with industry to get their feedback and help us deliver what people want and need from an event,” commented ecobuild Managing Director, Martin Hurn. “ecobuild 2018 will bring together the most innovative brands, speakers and experiences and provide them with thought-provoking, valuable content and an unparalleled opportunity for sharing ideas, networking and relationship building.
“In partnering and co-hosting with the BREEAM Awards we are further demonstrating that we are putting sustainability back at the core of the show.”
This year’s awards will be made up of two streams. The first is for professional champions covering architectural leadership, M&E leadership, and assessors. The second is projects, which will be broken down into commercial, public and homes.
As part of the event GRESB, the European leaders in assessment of the ESG performance of worldwide real estate assets and investments, will present awards for responsible investment.
The awards will take place on the evening of the first day of ecobuild – Tuesday 6th March – in the Platinum Suite at ExCeL. The award winners and shortlisted projects will also be showcased throughout the ecobuild show in a dedicated awards gallery, which will surround the show’s central conference arena.
