2014 Progress Report (due the first quarter of each calendar year) –

At Greenbuild, AIA released the 2013 Progress Report: AIA 2030 Commitment, and announced the evolution of our AIA 2030 Commitment program. The AIA 2030 Design Data Exchange (DDx) is a new, online portal for firms to track and submit project data across portfolios and reporting years. The Department of Energy’s Standard Energy Efficiency Data (SEED) database will serve as the platform to the new online reporting tool. The launch of the AIA 2030 DDx is anticipated in late December 2014 or early January 2015 and will be available for 2014 portfolio reporting. Improved user interface and new functionality for internal portfolio analysis and confidential, national portfolio research are on the horizon!

Once the AIA 2030 DDx is launched, firms will have access to their own, unique portal into the database including data from projects submitted in 2013. Committed firms can begin entering project information for their 2014 portfolios directly into the AIA 2030 DDx at that time. More information about the AIA 2030 DDx will be available in the coming weeks with the launch of the online database. Watch the AIA 2030 Commitment website for announcements on upcoming training opportunities.

For those signatory firms that prefer the previous submission method, AIA will accept the reporting spreadsheet updated for 2014 here. Please email completed spreadsheets with project names replaced with generic placeholders to

The transition from the spreadsheet tool to the AIA 2030 DDx necessitates some minor changes to the minimum data submitted through both the online database and spreadsheet tool. The following project data is required for 2014 reporting for the AIA 2030 Commitment:

• Project Name/Identifier

• Country

• Project Design Phase

• Zip Code (US Projects)

• Building Use Type

• Building Area

• Energy Modeling Status

• Energy Baseline (EUI)

• Design Energy (pEUI)

• Will Energy Use Data be Collected

• LPD Baseline (Interiors Only Projects)

• LPD (Interiors Only Projects)

• Design Energy Code

The Institute appreciates the effort of AIA 2030 Commitment Signatory Firms in collecting and sharing data related to the predicted energy and water performance of their design portfolios. We hope you are able to review the newly released report and please ask that you share it within your firms and business circles. If you have any thoughts, comments or visions for future reports, we encourage you to post to the2030 Commitment Discussion Forum. The deadline for 2014 submissions is March 31, 2015. Please direct any questions on the AIA 2030 Commitment to

Operational Action Items (due within six months of joining)
You will have the ability to report progress on your operational action items by inputting information directly into an online form. Remember that this is not just about reporting, this is about sharing successful strategies with other firms and the public as a knowledge resource. The firm will implement a minimum of four operational action items from the list provided. These actions will be undertaken while the long-term sustainability plan is in development.

Sustainability Action Plan (due within a year of joining)
Firms are expected to submit a comprehensive sustainability action plan that addresses a firm’s approach to operations, management and design. Unlike the firm operations, the AIA does not provide an online reporting form for the sustainability action plan. This decision was based on the desire for firms to develop an action plan that fit its identity and could potentially be used as marketing materials for the firm in the future. A firm simply uploads its Sustainability Action Plan as a Word or PDF document.
