The Sustainability Awards 2021

In partnership with

The Awards

We are excited to hold the inaugural Sustainability awards in partnership with Surge. The awards highlight the importance of sustainability across spaces and product design with an intention to encourage the entire buying process to be a socially responsible one.


Sustainability Awards are independently judged by a panel of diverse individuals who are responsible for decision making and advocates in the industry. The Awards adopt some of the principles from LEED of USGBC and recognize sustainable certifications relevant to this process. The judging criteria is weighted between design and its green credentials, which can be backed by 3rd party certifications.

Join us at the Surge Design Gala

The Sustainability Awards will take place during the
Design, Dine, make a Difference 2021 event held by Surge.
