Measuring Progress on Sustainability

By most estimates, we only have two decades left to get to zero carbon emissions and avoid the catastrophes of climate change. Meanwhile, the global pandemic has put a spotlight on human wellness, public health, and social equity. How are A&D firms and manufacturers measuring their progress on all these fronts?

Making all Buildings Healthier

2020 underscored the connections between human health and sustainability. Across the supply chain for buildings and interiors—from product manufacturing to design, construction, and operations—no process that compromises the health of humans and other life can be considered sustainable. What challenges lie ahead for the healthy buildings movement?

Join us for a discussion on how perspectives on health and wellness can inform and enrich all forms of sustainable design practice.

Understanding the Whole Life Impact of Buildings & Interiors

Every building or interior starts as minerals or resources in the earth and touches the lives of thousands of people through manufacturing, design, construction, and use before it is demolished, renovated, or reused. How can the A&D industry work towards positive impacts across the whole life of buildings?

Join us for a discussion on how materials transparency, equity initiatives, and circular strategies can build a model for holistic, sustainable architecture and interior design.
