Digital Design Series: Trifecta of Carbon Commitments

You may know about AIA 2030, but what about MEP 2040 and SE 2050? Join our discussion and learn how Oregon firms are leading the way to net zero carbon through these national commitments led by American Institute of Architects, Carbon Leadership Forum and Structural Engineering Institute.

If your firm is just beginning to discuss ways to reduce carbon in 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 and how the reporting process is informing the way they design. Learn how to turn your firm’s carbon commitments into action!

Naomi Cole, principal, Konstrukt (Moderator)

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

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

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 these carbon commitments.
