William McDonough Keynote Speaker

William McDonough

The William McDonough keynotes unveil the endless possibilities that lay behind sustainable design. Full-scale cities and small household appliances have all been made on behalf of McDonough with precise attention paid to the environment. The projects have gone hand in hand with William McDonough’s support of self-sufficient ventures, especially where the future of design is concerned.

Through his firms McDonough Innovation, William McDonough + Partners, and MBDC, William McDonough has defined the principles of the sustainability movement; creating its inspirational buildings, products, and writings. His commitment to the transformation of the industrial manufacturing industry has been relentless, and his co-authorship of 'Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things' has solidified his theories on the subject.

William McDonough's keynotes are a true source of inspiration, especially for those who maintain an interest in green initiatives. His studies at Dartmouth College and Yale University have fine-tuned his expertise on the subject. Additionally, William McDonough is a member of the Board of Directors for Sustainability at Arizona State University.
Among the awards of recognition for his industry leading work, Time named McDonough “Hero for the Planet” in 1999. Recognized for visionary work, McDonough was awarded the first and last Presidential Award for Sustainable Development in 1996. He also received the U.S. EPA Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award in 2003. The World Economic Forum appointed William McDonough as Chair to the Meta-Council on the Circular Economy in 2014. William McDonough continues to be active in advancing a positive, values-based approach to sustainable growth through his companies and collaborations.
