Join Edward Mazria, Marsha Maytum, Karin Bjorkman Bell, Holly W. Samuelson and colleagues to experience this year’s COTE Top Ten for Students. The focus of the session is designing for the future impacts of climate change: energy and emissions, adaptation, and resilience.
During the Global Climate Action Summit, Architecture 2030 will present the national and international ZERO Codeas well as the new ZERO Code model building energy ordinance for adoption by local jurisdictions in California
Additionally, Architecture 2030 will be releasing our much anticipated Carbon Smart Materials Palette, an attribute-based design and specification guidance aimed at reducing the embodied carbon impacts of the built environment.
Carbon Smart Building Day will be held on September 11 as a Global Climate Action Summit affiliated event to introduce the latest tools, resources and programs necessary to decarbonize the built environment. It will include the Carbon Smart Materials Palette which focuses on today’s most carbon-intensive materials, as well as naturally low-carbon alternatives.
More announcements on Architecture 2030’s role at the Global Climate Action Summit to come soon – stay tuned!
Architecture 2030’s mission is to rapidly transform the built environment from the major contributor of greenhouse gas emissions to a central solution to the climate crisis.
