– New awards programme to recognise Irish pioneers and leaders in net-zero construction
With sustainability now a core principle among construction firms, architects, engineers and building material manufacturers, zero-energy building is very much in focus across the construction sector.
Towards Net Zero Ireland Construction Awards
The Towards Net Zero Ireland Construction Awards is a new awards programme that has been developed to recognise pioneers and leaders amongst building owners, developers, designers, and managers who are demonstrating significant progress along the path towards net zero.
The inaugural Towards Net Zero Ireland Construction Awards event will take place in Dublin on 16 September 2022.
The principles of Net Zero incorporate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) standards. Environmental principles are balanced by health and wellbeing, as well as governance, in which the community, government, and developer work towards the goal of achieving and delivering these objectives in a meaningful and measurable way.
The 10 Towards Net Zero Ireland Construction Awards categories are structured around sustainability, covering energy efficiency, carbon reduction, and industry best practice.
Who should enter?
The awards are open to architects, builders, and developers in the sector, irrespective of size, across the island of Ireland. Entries will be judged on merit by an independent panel of experts according to the following criteria:
- Overall design
- Energy efficiencies achieved
- Application of technology
- Full lifecycle carbon reduction achieved
Closing date for entries
Submissions will be accepted on or before 14 February 2022, and the winners will be announced at a function on 16 September 2022.
