Our mission is to accelerate the transition towards net zero carbon emissions in buildings and infrastructure
Part of the problem, Part of the solution Through decades, most of my professional work has been in sustainable development - some of the most ambitious and highly rated green masterplans and buildings. I had always believed whole heartedly that I was part of the solution in the fight against climate change, but have come to realize I have also been part of the problem.
Given all the green buildings and sustainable developments the Architecture Engineering Construction (AEC) sector collectively produces, we hardly move the needle on our share of the 40% global CO2 emissions, 40% of drinking water pollution, 40% of worldwide energy usage, and 23% of air pollution.
It is time for us to collaborate to rethink how we design, re-examine what materials we build with, and reconsider how we construct.
