SUSTAINABILITY AWARD

We have introduced the Sustainability Award category for the 2022 MONDO-DR Awards and having received a lot of feedback on the relevance of this category to the industry, we are expanding its reach to not just include venues but also companies, products and concepts that fit the worldwide drive to reduce carbon emissions in every sector. So if you have worked on a project that has involved any form of sustainability within its brief; or are a company that has strived to reduce your carbon footprint through energy saving or green power generation; or have released a product that helps to reduce its impact in operation or manufactured manner then this can now be entered.
