A full agenda has been revealed for the Sustainable Design Summit (SDS), which will be hosted at The Brewery in London, UK, on 29 November 2022.

The keynote session ‘Pitching to stakeholders: how to hold a conversation about sustainability’ will unite designers from the land, air and cruise interior industries. It will include a discussion between Bryan Liska, director of design at Caribbean & Latin America Hilton Hotels; Thomas Westergaard, vice president of Hurtigruten Expeditions; and Tasha Jackson, sustainability lead at Boeing.

Breakout sessions will also allow designers to discuss the challengers of interior design for each sector, including certification requirements and supply chain operations. These sessions will be led by designers, brand owners and sustainability experts.

Brands represented at SDS include British Airways, IHG Hotels & Resorts, TUI Cruises, Virgin Voyages, and certification and sustainability advisory companies Cradle to Cradle and AIRA.

“Working in a multidisciplinary studio, across lots of different fields, we regularly find that we're able to take good ideas from one area and apply them to another,” said Luke Pearson, co-founder and director of Pearson Lloyd. “Ultimately, that approach is the one we’re going to have to take if we're really going to solve this problem, because we have very little time to solve it.”
