462 and Counting
December 2017 | Announcements | 2030 Commitment
To date, 462 AIA member firms have joined the AIA 2030 Commitment. By joining the Commitment, firms connect with a leading group of professionals that are addressing today’s most pressing issues – climate change, sustainability, and energy and greenhouse gas emissions reductions in the built environment.
In 2006, Architecture 2030 issued the 2030 Challenge, calling for all new buildings, developments, and major renovations to be carbon-neutral by 2030. To support this call to action, the American Institute of Architects created the AIA 2030 Commitment in 2010, a national program structured to help firms meet and track progress towards the 2030 Challenge targets.
Today there are nearly 1,200 firms, organizations and individuals that have adopted the 2030 Challenge. The AIA 2030 Commitment builds on the Challenge by providing a mechanism for firms to track and evaluate their current work and progress toward the carbon-neutral goal.
If your firm has not yet joined the AIA 2030 Commitment, we encourage you connect with your peers and sign up today. For a limited time, new Commitment signatories get the first course of the AIA+2030 Series for free. See below for more details.
Together, as we work to meet the AIA 2030 Commitment, we are making a difference – the U.S. building sector is currently on track to meet the reduction target set in the Paris Climate Agreement at 21% to 28% below 2005 levels by 2025.
