Reducing Carbon

Climate Action Plan

Buildings today are the largest single contributor to greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs), responsible for almost one-half of the total annual production in the US. As architects, we understand the need to exercise leadership in mitigating GHGs, particularly as our practice is centered on buildings that are highly energy intensive. Ellenzweig signed the AIA 2030 Commitment in 2013 as a pledge to designing Net Zero Energy buildings by the year 2030. Our Climate Action Plan outlines how we will work towards this goal through staff engagement, design and innovation, and advocacy and outreach in the community.
