Engineering consultancy, Norman Disney & Young (NDY), has been named as the only Australian finalist in the World Green Building Council’s (WorldGBC’s) inaugural Asia Pacific Regional Network Leadership Awards in Green Building.

According to WorldGBC Chief Executive Officer, Jane Henley, the Business Leadership in Sustainability award recognises companies that have made social, economic and environmental sustainability a central part of their business model.

“NDY has consistently been at the forefront of green building solutions and was a founding member of the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA). We applaud NDY for its ongoing innovation, leadership and continued contribution to a sustainable built environment,” Ms Henley says.

NDY was selected as a finalist – from a field of 55 companies around the Asia Pacific – for its commitment to embed sustainability into its business operations, services to clients, and the delivery of projects.

“NDY has been a champion of more efficient, healthy, productive and resilient buildings for many years, has worked on 68 projects certified under the Green Star rating system, and has supported the development of the Green Star – Performance rating tool for existing buildings. We congratulate the team at NDY for this recognition,” says the GBCA’s Chief Executive, Romilly Madew.

“Sustainability is at the heart of what we do at NDY,” says Tony Arnel, NDY’s Global Director of Sustainability, and former Chair of both the GBCA and WorldGBC. “We work with our clients to find design solutions that focus on resource efficiency and environmental management, and we are committed to minimising our own ecological footprint too.

Recognition as a finalist in the inaugural APN awards reinforces this commitment.”

The winners in both categories will be announced in Singapore at a gala dinner on 3 September 2014.
