AIA 2030 Commitment by the numbers
See the numbers, take a step forward
The drumbeat of news about effects related to a changing climate—and the resulting loss of life and property—refuses to stop. Recent IPCC reports clearly communicate the urgency to take substantial steps towards reducing our energy consumption and combating climate change—for our well-being and that of our environment.
With 40% of U.S. energy consumed by buildings, architects play a key role in making significant reductions in CO2 emissions. The AIA 2030 Commitment program offers architects a way to publicly show their dedication and track progress toward a carbon-neutral future. Since 2009, participants in the Commitment have reported the performance of their firm portfolios over each calendar year. The data, collected via the 2030 Design Data Exchange (DDx), includes building type, area, baseline energy performance, and predicted energy performance.
Firms who have joined the 2030 Commitment are already putting in the work.
