Sustainability@AIA
The AIA launched the Sustainability Leadership Opportunity Scan in 2013 that identified four priority areas for architectural leadership through sustainability: two core-to-design issues on Energy and Materials and two that focus on emerging trends of Design + Health and Resilience. There's been a lot of activity within the AIA and with key partners since that initial document on each of these topic areas. This session will go into detail about recent activities, what we've learned to date and how plans for the future are developing to increase the focus and impact for all engaged in driving toward a sustainable, resilient and equitable future.

Institutionalizing Sustainability: Transforming Professional Practices to Achieve Portfolio-wide Improvements / Consistently Higher Performance on Projects
Summary: The future of our planet and the future of our industry depend on our ability to thrive in systems, to co-create in collaboration and to achieve levels of synergy that transform our impact. The 2030 Challenge, Living Buildings, Net Zero, BREEAM and LEED all define building performance targets for the industry. Yet, a critical gap remains between rising performance goals and the organizational capability to consistently achieve them.
