Architecture Industry Aiming at Net Zero

The American Institute of Architect’s 2030 Commitment is an actionable climate strategy that gives AIA members a set of standards and goals for reaching net zero emissions in the built environment. Now, architecture firms are focusing on their own organizational emissions.

The AIA 2030 Commitment’s standard and goals for reaching net zero can be exciting and daunting at once. Since the built environment creates a staggering 40% of the world’s emissions, architects, engineers, and owners play a key role in reaching net zero. More than 1,300 architecture firms, from sole proprietors to international design firms, are leading the effort to reduce emissions from the built environment.

The industry has long focused on reducing built environment emissions. More recently, however, there has been a trend towards more firms accounting for and taking meaningful steps to reduce their own operational emissions. 

Verdis Group knows the unique challenges and opportunities of measuring and meaningfully reducing operational emissions. Due to our experience consulting with several members of the Large Firm Roundtable (LFRT), we also have an excellent understanding of the LFRT’s sustainability guidelines.
