AIA Program to Support Carbon-Neutral Buildings by 2030

Washington, DC, June 20, 2018-Engineers can now join architects in signing up for The American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2030 Commitment to measure progress towards reducing energy and carbon in the design of buildings.

The program provides a framework of energy targets, metrics and a comprehensive data tool that allows signatories to the commitment to track progress towards net zero carbon by 2030. Currently there are 522 firms signed onto the 2030 Commitment. Last year, the program had 21 percent more firms actively engaged in the program and sharing annual data.

By committing and participating in the program, firms directly support the AIA's position that architects can-and should-mitigate the effects of climate change through policy advocacy, education, and energy modeling.

“Progress towards our 2030 goals will be more efficient by developing shared targets early and across the design team,” said 2030 Working Group Co-Chair Nate Kipnis, FAIA. “Architects want to work with engineers that are working towards these shared goals through the 2030 Commitment’s tools and framework. We look forward to working with engineers to meet these challenging and important goals.”

The AIA Conference on Architecture 2018 (A’18) taking place June 21-23 in New York.
