More buildings are meeting certain goals, but energy intensity reduction results have flat lined
Washington, DC – October 5, 2016 – The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has produced a report assessing the work of firms that are part of theAIA 2030 Commitment, a voluntary initiative to commit their practice to advancing the AIA’s goal of carbon-neutral buildings by the year 2030 that began reporting performance data in 2010.
