Sustainability

Populous has been at the forefront of environmentally sustainable design solutions for public assembly venues since the formation of our practice, from Accor Stadium (1999) and the London Olympics (2012) to Climate Pledge Arena (2021).

As designers, we have a responsibility to continuously seek new, impactful solutions in response to the realities of the climate crisis. Because the buildings and events we create are often vast and the centerpiece of wider community districts, our role in climate action is unique. Environmentally responsive design, energy performance, sustainable materials selection and technological integration are foundational elements to our design approach.

As part of our ongoing commitment, Populous is a signatory to Architects Declare Australia, Architects Declare UK and the AIA 2030 Commitment. Sustainability at Populous means ensuring we lead by example and are operating our offices in an environmentally responsible way. Our EMEA region has achieved ISO 14001 certification and our APAC region is currently pursuing this certification.
