New for the 2013 Reporting Tool, we request that all firms please submit your entire 2030 Spreadsheet with project names deleted to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 31, 2014. Public reporting on firm progress is an essential element of the 2030 Commitment. Open dialogue regarding the challenges faced in transforming how firms design projects and operate as a firm is vital as we seek to reduce the negative impact of the design and construction industry on the climate. It is also an opportunity for the profession to highlight achievements and success.
FOR FIRMS | REPORTING REQUIREMENTS
This year we request that all firms please submit your entire 2030 Spreadsheet with project names deleted to email@example.com by March 31, 2014.
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.
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 it’s Sustainability Action Plan as a Word or PDF document.
Annual Progress Report (due the first quarter of each calendar year) –
Perhaps the most critical aspect of the AIA 2030 Commitment is the pledge to measure and report annual progress of a firm’s design portfolio towards the 2030 goals. A firm’s annual progress will be reported by emailing the entire spreadsheet, with project names deleted, to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 31st, 2014.
