Free and open to all.
RSVP to events@aiaeb.org.

AIA East Bay COTE members Alice Sung, AIA (Greenbank Associates) and Larry Strain, FAIA (Siegel and Strain Architects) present: Getting to Zero: The AIA 2030 Commitment and Other Strategies. Some of us have heard about Architecture 2030 and/or the AIA’s partner program, the 2030 Commitment, but how many of us are walking our talk about getting to zero energy or carbon, and reporting on performance with every project?  Whether you are already a signatory firm (it’s free!) but struggle with fulfilling your AIA 2030 Commitment, OR want to learn more about the topic and real world approaches to getting to zero energy and zero carbon, this evening meeting is for you. Come learn about the AIA 2030 Commitment and other strategies to get us to zero carbon, including: the value of embedded carbon, materials selection (2030 Palette) , district-scale approaches, and de-carbonization /electrification of our EXISTING buildings.  Share your thoughts, join in in the discussion.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand what Architecture 2030 and the AIA 2030 Commitment programs are.
  2. Understand what it means to “sign-on,” and learn best practices for reporting performance towards zero carbon.
  3. Learn a variety of approaches within architectural practice, to get to a zero carbon built environment.
  4. Better walk your “sustainable design” talk.
