Welcome to sust.org, Scotland`s first dedicated web site to sustainable design in architecture and the built environment.
The Sust. initiative was developed in collaboration with the at the (then) Scottish Executive in 2002 in order to raise public awareness of sustainable design and the contribution it can make in delivering a sustainable future, and improve an understanding of sustainable design for those commissioning new buildings.
In November 2009, the Sust. programme became part of Architecture and Design Scotland’s new Glasgow office, based at The Lighthouse in Mitchell Lane. Sust.org provides a unique web resource, giving access to a wide variety of information, resources and guidance on sustainability.
While parts of the site are aimed at professionals such as architects and designers, other sections are more general and will be of interest to anyone wanting to know more about this subject. The site brings together an overview of some of the key projects that Sust. has supported since its inception in 2002 with a focus on assisting the delivery and mainstreaming of sustainable buildings and places. We are currently expanding our physical resources in the Glasgow office with the development of a physical Materials Library to complement our Green Directory, with associated training and other events and activities in the newly refurbished A+DS Workshop and are now able to showcase our work in a new exhibition space. The Sust. programme is funded by The Scottish Government through A+DS.
