AIA 2030 Commitment

AIA strives to work globally to help reduce operational and embodied greenhouse gas production with passive design techniques, employ energy efficiency measures, adapt existing buildings, and specify low-impact building materials that increase human health and productivity while withstanding the effects of a changing climate. The AIA 2030 Commitment is one of AIA’s mission to support the 2030 Challenge and transform the practice of architecture in a way that is holistic, firm-wide, project based, and data-driven. By prioritizing energy performance, participating firms can more easily work toward carbon neutral buildings, developments and major renovations by 2030.

In ARCHITECT’s December 2019 magazine, they provided a list of firms who “met the AIA 2030 Commitment’s most important target – 70% pEUI savings across their entire portfolio” pp. 75. Out of the firms listed, two of them are from the AIA East Bay chapter: Arkin Tilt Architects and Pyatok Architecture + Urban Design. Thank you and congratulations to all the firms who prioritize and support effective actions to exponentially decelerate the production of greenhouse gases contributing to climate change!
