Shaping a sustainable future by design

26-28 September 2022
China World Summit Wing,
China World Trade Centre, Beijing

Ensuring a sustainable future is the biggest challenge we face today and one in which design across all its sectors plays a significant role. Architects and designers are the starting point for building development and therefore have an inherent responsibility to embed positive environmental and social impact and circular strategies into building design, as the built environments being developed today are creating our future.

The Sustainable Design China Summit represents a unique opportunity to showcase the sustainable design innovations, green technologies, products, systems and circular strategies within the global design industry that are being adopted to meet the new COP 26 Sustainability targets and reduce the environmental impact of the design and construction industries.
