By continuously promoting sustainable design practices, we can create a more sustainable design industry.
This can have a positive impact not only on the environment, but also on the health and well-being of the people who live and work in the spaces we design.
By providing education, resources, and fostering a taskforce of sustainable designers, we can encourage the interior design community to continuously adopt sustainable practices and create a more sustainable future.

Choose materials that are environmentally friendly, such as reclaimed wood, recycled metal, and natural fibers.
Use LED lighting and energy-efficient appliances to reduce your energy consumption and lower your carbon footprint.
Consider the full lifecycle of your design. Use materials that can be recycled or repurposed, and look for ways to minimise waste throughout the design process.
Look for ways to create designs that are socially responsible, such as using fair trade materials or supporting local artisans.
Look for suppliers that are local to your area to reduce transportation emissions and support your local economy.
When exhibiting your work or attending industry events, choose sustainable transportation options such as public transportation, cycling, or carpooling.
Create products that stand the test of time and last consumers a lifetime. Prioritise repairability, offering repair services and access to spare parts whenever possible.
