AIA 2030 Commitment

The AIA has recently updated its 2030 Commitment Reporting Tool, a tool that assists in providing firms a method to track the predicted energy use of their complete design portfolios. Since buildings are the largest contributor to the production of greenhouse gases and represent nearly half of the total annual production, this tool provides an avenue to address and exercise our responsibility in the creation of the built environment.

In order to increase the relevance and better suit the needs of firms, the AIA has expanded the toolset to include additional building types, additional code equivalents, distinctions between new construction/renovation and interior work, and a mixed use calculator.

For those unfamiliar with the 2030 Commitment Reporting Tool it encompasses a variety of obligations and responsibilities to help increase a firm’s viability in terms of progressive responsible architecture methodology. The commitment involves establishing leadership, implementation of operational action items, development of sustainability action plan, and reporting of annual progress.
