SDC – The Sustainable Design Collective


Join Us!

The Sustainable Design Collective was formed as a ‘think tank’ group for workplace architects, designers, specifiers & consultants. As part of our commitment to knowledge sharing, we are inviting companies (suppliers & manufacturers) to become affiliates.

Affiliation will provide support for our initiatives as well as highlighting to colleagues and customers your commitment to driving greater sustainability within the workplace sector.

We are also introducing a separate category specifically for ‘start up’ companies focussed on new innovations relating to environmental responsibility as well as Not for profit organisations integrating social value, diversity and inclusion.

Each application will be reviewed for the applicant’s products, work and commitments towards sustainability. Please note: if the review is not satisfactory, the affiliation may be withdrawn.
