COTE Presents:

AIA 2030 Commitment Subcommittee
Introduction and Firm Roundtable

AIA’s Climate Action Plan states that climate change affects every person, every project, and every client. The 2030 Commitment supports urgent climate action for firms of all sizes. This four-part 2030 Commitment webinar series is for architects, designers, and engineers. All participants will have a basic understanding of the 2030 Commitment, information to craft their own Sustainability Action Plan, tools for impacting their projects performance, and a peer network to continue working towards 2030 goals. We encourage attendees to sign their firm onto the 2030 Commitment before, during, or after these sessions. Attendance of all four sessions is encouraged but not mandatory.

This session will be focused on demystifying the Commitment. Sustainability leaders from firms of a variety of sizes will be answering questions to provide insight into how they got started and how they are working towards the goals of the Commitment. They will share lessons learned and success stories from projects in Texas and beyond.
