Committee on the Environment + 2030 Commitment

The Committee on the Environment (COTE) + 2030 Commitment is an AIA Knowledge Community that provides an actionable climate strategy plan with a set of standards and goals for reaching net zero emissions in the built environment by 2030. Working for architects, allied professionals, and the public to achieve climate action and justice through design, we believe that design excellence is the foundation of a healthy, sustainable, and equitable future. Our work promotes design strategies that empower all AIA members to realize the best social and environmental outcomes with the clients and the communities they serve.
