Elaborating on the relevance of the category, Lucy Feagins, founder and editor of The Design Files shared: “Sustainability should be intrinsic in all good design. It’s important to acknowledge and champion those designers who make environmental considerations a central part of their practice. As part of this awards program, we really wanted to celebrate those designers who are creating products and projects that protect our environment, reduce consumption of non-renewable resources, and contribute overall to a healthier environment. There is a lot of doom and gloom out there when we think about our environment and our climate, but there are also a lot of great creative thinkers coming up with simple, effective solutions to many of the challenges we face, and it’s important they are celebrated.”

The Sustainable Design category is judged by Jeremy McLeod (Breathe Architecture, Nightingale Housing) and Abigail Forsyth (KeepCup). Over the coming weeks, judges of all categories will deliberate to select 12 winners and a number of commendations to be announced at a special ceremony on Thursday, September 19th at Deakin Edge, Federation Square Melbourne.
