The American Institute of Architects has signed an agreement of understanding with other building professionals and the US Department of Energy, committing to net zero energy buildings by 2030.
The participants were:
The American Institute of Architects (AIA)
The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE)
The Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA)
The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC)
- supported by representatives of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)
Edward Mazria AIA: The task we face is daunting... Working separately, we could accomplish something significant in each of our respective spheres. But by working together, we actually have a chance to influence the course of history - and we will.
No sign of any building owners on that list unfortunately.
