APDC is a Visionary Sustainable Design organization that aims at promoting the Creative Industry in all its facets. APDC promotes projects that are more profitable for business, people and the planet. Asia Pacific Design Center (APDC) is a Promotional member of the International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers (IFI), in the Interior Architecture/Design field. For its Awards, APDC invites the Creative Industry to present products and projects that, despite their different requirements, have adopted strategies to ensure that they have the desired sustainable effect on our environment. APDC is particularly sensitive to projects designed with little or no negative impact on the environment in material production, manufacturing processes, packaging and transportation, use and disposal or even its second scheduled life. This also goes along the line for products being used by interior designers in their projects. APDC is particularly sensitive to the fact that today’ sustainability is measured according to the impacts of products on the environment, it’s financial achievement and social suitability. We are aware that being sustainable is not an easy business when success is measured on the “Bottom Line”; now we are talking about a triple bottom line where not only the profit is measured in terms of “money” but where the social and environmental issues are evaluated in terms of “profit and lost”.  Environmental Sustainability  Social Sustainability  Financial Sustainability Sustainability therefore requires designers to understand the 3 main subdivisions that we believe will be the key to their success in the years to come in Asia. The professional practice of design starts with design education. However, education alone does not produce good design. No education institution will guaranty you a Creativity and Creative Thinking degree. Design Colleges and Universities are not necessarily planned to give students the insight into modern technological advances in design and industry. This one aspect where APDC can help achieves the ongoing emancipation of the members of the Creative Industry. Mr. Claude Bérubé is the founding president of APDC and a leading figure in the international design arena; he is a past president of the International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers, an Honourable Member and past-president of the interior designers association of Quebec and the past-president of the Interior Designers of Canada (IDC). He is also a past-president of the Industrial Design Association of Quebec. The Core Members of APDC include Chinese global excellent architects, interior designers and product designers who are active in Greater China, in the Asia Pacific region but also around the world as the APDC Award is open globally. APDC has several Chapters across China. To name a few of the most important one: Shanghai, Beijing, Hangzhou, Chengdu, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Macau, Shiziazhuang….
