The Committee on the Environment (COTE) works to advance, disseminate, and advocate – to the profession, the building industry, the academy, and the public – design practices that integrate built and natural systems and enhance both the design quality and environmental performance of the built environment.
If you are interested in learning more about, sharing your expertise, and/or collaborating to promote green buildings, and meaningful climate change action in the building/energy sector, this committee is for you!
