Climate Action Resources

Achieve Climate Goals—Resources for Members & Firms

The built environment is responsible for over 40% of global carbon emissions* and the architectural profession can greatly mitigate this impact through design. AIA California’s member-curated climate action resources are created by a diverse group of professionals with a deep understanding of climate science, policy, and sustainable practices.

Their collective expertise ensures that the resources are comprehensive, well-researched, and balanced—providing guidance, tools, and information on the latest research, case studies, and best practices for reducing carbon emissions, conserving resources, and creating resilient and energy-efficient buildings.

reach carbon neutrality by 2030

The AIA 2030 Commitment is an actionable climate strategy that gives us a set of standards and goals for reaching net zero emissions in the built environment.

The latest climate data tells us that reducing carbon emissions is not enough. We must all commit to net zero emissions by 2030—a path that requires strong, immediate action. More than 1,200 firms have already committed to reaching carbon neutrality by 2030. Are you ready to join them?
