There are 4 steps to adopting the Designers Accord. After you have read the information below and accepted the terms, your firm name will be sent to the Designers Accord for validation. Once validated, it will take just a few days to see your Designers Accord badge displayed at your Design Directory firm listing.
We ask all adopters, globally, to proactively engage in a dialogue about environmental and social impact with each and every client and customer, and to integrate sustainable alternatives in their work. By collectively committing to having this conversation, we will compel businesses to evaluate sustainability as a key vector in decision-making for their products and services.
We promote openly sharing knowledge and experience about sustainability, from an environmental, cultural, social, and economic perspective. We believe building our intelligence around these issues should be a collective exercise. For this cause, we advocate inverting the traditional model of competition, and encourage pooling knowledge so that all may benefit and build on marketable and sustainable solutions. We believe this will lead to greater innovation.
