SCB Signs AIA 2030 Commitment
SCB has signed the AIA 2030 Commitment, a voluntary agreement to create high-performance buildings – and ultimately carbon neutral buildings – by the year 2030. By signing the AIA 2030 Commitment, SCB becomes an industry leader in reducing energy use, and takes concrete steps towards that goal. These steps include:
1. Appointing an in-house sustainability team: SCB’s team is led by Mark Frisch, FAIA, LEED AP BD+C, and Mike Stopka, AIA LEED AP BD+C
2. Developing a comprehensive, firm-wide long term sustainability plan
3. Providing annual progress reports on SCB’s sustainability plan to the AIA
The 2030 Commitment is an initiative by the American Institute of Architects to support the goals of the 2030 Challenge. All signatory firms agree to reduce energy consumption and green house gas emissions across their entire portfolio, not just for projects seeking green building certification. The 2030 Challenge was inspired by Architecture 2030, a non-profit organization created to push the global building industry to design and construct carbon neutral buildings in response to concerns about climate change.
