About the AIA 2030 Commitment Third Annual Report
The mission of the AIA 2030 Commitment is straightforward: to take the aspirational goals of 2030 and transition to the reality of achieving tangible, strategically targeted performance goals on every project the architecture profession touches.
The third annual AIA 2030 Commitment progress report documents the energy use and practice findings from participating firms. This wealth of information offers useful insights into the myths, realities, benefits and opportunities of participating in the AIA 2030 Commitment.
In addition this year, for the first time, data shared on energy use by specific project type and sizes enhances the report’s direct impact on future designs. It can serve as a valuable resource for all types and sizes of architecture practices.
