That’s why we are calling for a commitment to Design for Sustainability wherever we go

By the end of this decade, we must radically reduce our impact on this planet to avoid catastrophic climate change. For the sake of the thousands of species whose existence is threatened, for the millions of vulnerable people who will be forced from their homes, and for the inspiring beauty that is life on this planet – we cannot fail.

But as designers, this is the environment we thrive in. We are innovative. We are creative. We are critical. Designers have a natural role to play in accelerating the sustainability transition. And so, as individuals and as an industry, we must join forces to reduce resource use, greenhouse gases and enable sustainable lifestyles. We must work toward embedding sustainability in our companies and in our projects as quickly as possible.

Let’s join forces and publicly commit to a common future

A commitment means that if you don’t know how to design for sustainability, you find out. If you don’t know where to start, you just take your first step. If it’s not on the agenda or the brief, you get it there. If it means searching for new opportunities elsewhere, you go out in the market and let employers know that you want to design for sustainability, because even this is pushing the needle in a world where every organisation is competing for talent.

 A commitment does not mean the work is done, it doesn’t mean that the solutions are clear, but it does mean that you’ve made a decision to explore different possibilities and you won’t be doing it alone. Let’s stand together and let the world know that we are ready to be positive change agents for the planet!

If you’re ready to commit to making design for sustainability a reality in your work and in your company, fill in your name and company below and we will display your name on this webpage along the others who have also committed.

We hope that you are willing and able to commit to making sustainable change with your work. Vincit commits to helping you do that. 

Will you join us?

Commitment

By putting my name below, I am joining a united front of concerned but proactive designers. I will do my best to design for sustainability, to reduce resource use and emissions while enabling sustainable lifestyles with my design. Further, I commit to making every effort to embed sustainability into my organisation and my projects as quickly as possible.
