We must reduce greenhouse gas emissions 50% by 2030. If we fail, we are on a track to trigger “dangerous interference with the climate system.”
Introducing Achieving Zero: a “how-to” framework and a set of tools to enable cities and sub-national governments (state, provincial, and regional) to achieve crucial emissions reduction targets in the building sector.
At the recent International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) hearings held in Albuquerque, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and Architecture 2030’s ZERO Code Renewable Energy Appendix was approved by the Commercial IECC Committee.
Last week, at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Conference on Architecture in Las Vegas, the architecture and building community made history when they overwhelmingly voted for the “AIA Resolution for Urgent and Sustained Climate Action,” 4,860 yes to 312 no.
