Climate Action for Architects

Radio BE-Ex Podcast, Building Energy Exchange Podcast Series, Episode 14

As a former AIA President with a deep professional history in architectural practice, Carl Elefante understands the important role architects play in preparing for the future and making buildings more sustainable, resilient, and adaptable. The American Institute of Architects has announced a commitment to climate action: an acknowledgement of architects’ responsibility to help reduce climate impacts and address climate risk, along with plans for climate policy advocacy–in which Carl Elefante played a central role.  We will also discuss his long advocacy for focusing on our existing building stock as an opportunity for climate action.
