The 2030 Challenge has been adopted and supported by numerous professional organizations and over a thousand design firms. By designing and insuring that their projects meet and exceed the 2030 Challenge targets these firms are providing their clients with the best-performing and highest-quality buildings possible for little to no additional cost. These adopters are also able to take advantage of the federal, state and local incentives for those projects that achieve the 2030 Challenge targets, as well as lead the profession as national legislation is implemented that incorporates the 2030 Challenge targets into building codes.

The 2030 Challenge is widely adopted in the US and globally by individuals, professional organizations, and governments. It has been adopted into federal, state, and local government legislation and has become standard practice in most leading A/E/C firms. As a result, Architecture 2030 has shifted from counting and recording adopters to asking professional firms to report on their progress in meeting the 2030 Challenge targets through the AIA 2030 Commitment.
