HED ranks as an Interior Design Sustainable Design Giant of 2023
Interior Design has unveiled the 100 2023 Sustainability Giants, a listing of the top 100 environmentally focused studios in the USA.
HED’s firmwide mission is to have a positive impact for our clients, the community, and the world through design excellence. Our definition of design excellence is a solution built from thoughtful decision-making that creates measurable, real world positive impact. Sustainability is inseparable from design excellence, and significantly benefits what we refer to as “the triple bottom line” - the social, economic, and environmental impacts of a project.
Together with our clients and industry partners, we integrate sustainable planning, design and construction practices into our standard processes, embracing the AIA Framework for Design Excellence to create built environments that are responsive to known challenges and are resilient in the face of an uncertain future. We embrace reducing the use of non-renewable energy sources, supporting the conservation, stewardship and regeneration of natural resources and making informed, responsible and healthier design decisions that maximize positive impact for everyone.
HED is a Top 100 ranked Green Design Firm by Engineering News Record, an American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2030 Commitment reporting firm, a Carbon Leadership Forum's MEP 2040 Challenge reporting firm, a signatory of the 1.5°C COP26 Communiqué and the AEC Sustainable Leaders Group Build Back Greener letter campaign to President Biden. We are committed to these programs and others and are supporters of these causes because we believe it aligns with our firm's values and dedication to supporting clients with climate-resilient design.
