“Our formal support of the SE2050 Commitment allows us to share our research and knowledge on embodied carbon as well as combine our efforts with like-minded groups to reduce the impact of the built environment pollution on our planet. While architects have been committed to the AIA 2030 Challenge focusing on operational energy for years, the focus now turns to the structural community.”
–Ethan Martin, DCI Associate & Sustainability Committee Member
The A/E/C industry has adopted a whole assortment of green building standards in recent years, aiming to cut down on the environmental impacts of new construction. Rain water is collected, hopefully cutting down on stormwater that sends pollutants to local waterways. Solar panels generate electricity, which should reduce the need for non-renewable power. Low energy light bulbs limit total energy consumption.
