Digital Design Series: Turn Your Firm’s Carbon Commitments Into Action

JULY 10, 2024 | 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
  • This event has passed.

Take a deep dive on July 10 into understanding the AIA 2030, MEP 2040 and SE 2050 carbon commitments and how they work together to inspire change across the building industry. Join the conversation as we discuss with AIA Oregon how our region’s firms are leading the way to net-zero operational and embodied carbon through three national commitments led by American Institute of Architects, Carbon Leadership Forum and Structural Engineering Institute.

If your firm is just beginning to explore carbon reduction through design, or if your firm is already a full-fledged signatory, this webinar is for you. Panelists will share how they advocate for these commitments, their experience conducting analysis on their building portfolio and how the reporting process is informing design.

About the panelists:

Naomi Cole, principal, Konstrukt (moderator)

Erica Dunn, associate principal, Opsis Architecture, AIA 2030 Signatory

Ante Vulin, senior sustainability strategist, Glumac, MEP 2040 Signatory

Jessica Martinez, structural sustainability specialist, DCI Engineers, SE 2050 Signatory

Commitment support

The panel is facilitated by Energy Trust of Oregon, which offers two annual grants, the Net Zero Fellowship grant and the Net Zero Emerging Leaders Internship grant, which funds design firms to hire young professionals to support their carbon commitments.
