#Construction industry not on target to meet 2030 initiative carbon goals @sustaincities

In an update on its AIA 2030 Commitment initiative, the American Institute of Architects announced Wednesday that the building industry has failed to keep pace with the plan's energy-intensity reduction goals. Only 4% of projects so far have met the 70% energy savings target for 2015 building performance, with the average savings coming in at 38%. Each signatory to the program committed itself to the goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2030. The AIA said that roughly six in 10 of its signatory firms employ energy modeling early in the design process, a strategy that it claims is critical to meeting the 2030 goals.
