New York Times : May be of interest . . . NYT Climate Hub Netting Zero The New Zero-Carbon Normal for Cities Tuesday, September 22 1:30 p.m. E.T. 10:30 a.m. P.T. 6:30 p.m. B.S.T. 7:30 p.m. C.E.T. R.S.V.P. More than 70 cities worldwide have pledged to become carbon neutral by 2050. What are the winning innovations in building materials, energy and mobility, and what can be done to ensure that these innovations are spread quickly, more cities are brought into the process, and that zero-carbon goals move forward to 2040, or even 2035? What are the mind-sets, models and approaches to take city labs beyond pilot programs to the next level of systematic collaboration? Speakers: Moderator: Brad Plumer, Climate Reporter, The New York Times Claudia López, Mayor of Bogotá Francesco Starace, C.E.O. and General Manager, Enel Gonzalo Muñoz, High-Level Climate Champion for Chile Dr. Maria Neira, Director, Department of Environment, Climate Change and Health, World Health Organization Prof. Naomi Oreskes, Henry Charles Lea Professor of the History of Science, Harvard University Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr, Mayor of Freetown, Sierra Leone
It's been almost 20 years since Ed Mazria started Architecture 2030. Then, we had 30 years to make the changes, now we have 10. Covid-19 is a wake-up call, showing the importance to respond earlier rather than later to a crisis.
We won't be able to attend CarbonPositive 2020, but would love to share our new climate-positive structural bamboo product release with this community!
Can anyone provide specific data comparing the embodied carbon of cellulose vs fiberglass? I've read about 5 reports and they all have different findings, and it is hard to navigate the amount of date out there. We're looking at switching for up to 60 town houses, a big impact....
What Ed is doing needs as much support as possible! The architectural profession needs to fully engage before our time runs out. The future of the next generation will not survive if we are not up to the challenge.
What I believe is needed.
Time is now.
The KERB editorial team takes great pleasure in issuing our call for submissions for KERB #26: HOMELANDS. KERB is an internationally recognised design publication produced by the Landscape Architecture Program at RMIT University’s School of Architecture and Urban Design.This year's theme 'HOMELANDS' aims to institute dialogues between space and identity and surface tensions between belonging and exclusion.We aim to attract contributions from diverse disciplines and mediums.

Architecture 2030 is working to rapidly transform the global building sector from the greatest cause to the leading solution to climate change.

This is Architecture 2030's official page. Join up, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our E News Bulletins. Be part of the solution.

Mission: 2030’s mission is to rapidly transform the US and global Building Sector from the major contributor of greenhouse gas emissions to a central part of the solution to the climate change crisis. Our goal is straightforward: to achieve a dramatic reduction in the global-warming-causing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of the Building Sector by changing the way buildings and developments are planned, designed and constructed.

Operating as usual

We're thrilled to share that Architecture 2030's Edward Mazria received the 2021 Gold Medal, AIA's highest annual honor, for "his work sounding the alarm on climate change and motivating the profession to take action."

UK sets ambitious new climate target ahead of UN Summit

UK Prime Minister announced today a new ambitions target to reduce UK's emissions by at least 68% by 2030, compared to 1990 levels. This target commits the UK to cutting emissions at the fastest rate of any major economy so far.
. A new plan aims for at least 68% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by the end of the decade, compared to 1990 levels.

Building Industry Gets Serious About Its Embodied Carbon Problem

"This growing cadre of change makers has now set in motion a transition in the building industry that is as hopeful and may be as important as the better-known transition sweeping our electrical sector. They are trying to change the way materials are made. And they are trying to do it now, to preserve the delicate blanket of gases enveloping Earth, and with it, any hope of a recognizable climate.

As the professionals who specify or “spec” materials for buildings, they are powerful, and it is that power they are wielding."

This article by Ingrid Lobet gives a well-rounded, well-written overview of the important work our colleagues and community are doing to address building sector embodied carbon: Wringing carbon out of buildings, including the materials, is a major climate challenge. Industry veterans see changes stirring.

This year, the World Green Building Council is asking you to #ActOnClimate. World Green Building Week (September 21-25 2020) will immediately follow Architecture 2030's Carbon Positive RESET! Global Teach-In, and the events share a call to action. We need climate solutions that can scale rapidly, starting now--and we need commitments to follow them through. Read more at

World Green Building Week is calling on the building sector, policymakers and governments to take urgent action to deliver net zero buildings. The campaign to #ActOnClimate is threefold:

For Communities – net zero buildings support a healthier and more sustainable built environment, creating thriving and resilient communities.

For the Planet - buildings account for more than one-third of global carbon emissions. It’s vital we prioritise net zero buildings today to protect our planet and future generations.

Net Zero Buildings for Economies - investing in new and existing net zero buildings today can stimulate innovation, activate supply chains and create jobs.

New Analysis: Heat Pumps Slow Climate Change in Every Corner of the Country

Building electrification is the future, and it's what we need in the present. New analysis from the Sierra Club finds that ditching gas for clean electric heat pumps slashes carbon pollution in every single state—even if the grid is still powered by coal and gas. The climate benefits of ditching gas will only get bigger as the grid gets greener! New Analysis: Heat Pumps Slow Climate Change in Every Corner of the Country Driven by communities’ desire for a stable climate and local clean energy, safer and healthier homes, and more affordable energy bills, we are seeing a movement for electric homes quickly spread across the U.S. We already ...

"Fifty years ago today, unbeknownst to me at the tender age of 22 months, the first Earth Day gave voice to an emerging public consciousness about the state of our planet.
Five decades later, as we mark this milestone, it's a fitting time to ask: Have we made enough progress?

The indefatigable Ed Mazria, founder of Architecture 2030 and one of my climate action heroes, offered an insightful answer to this question at the recent CarbonPositive Conference and Expo in downtown Los Angeles, which I attended just before most of us came under stay-at-home orders.

In his keynote address, Ed eloquently summarized the climate crisis state of affairs. The good news: following a historic decoupling of GDP growth and emissions in the U.S., greenhouse gas emissions have plateaued despite significant economic growth between 2005 and 2019 -- and we are now at the beginning of the same decoupling globally. The bad news: we are at the center of the climate crisis and no longer just anticipating it."

Collective Action Reduces Embodied Carbon, But Hurdles Remain

"More than 400 architects, developers, contractors, engineers and policy makers came together for the first CarbonPositive event in March, presented by Architecture 2030 and ARCHITECT, that explored all aspects of design and construction approaches, and strategies and tools to design and build a carbon-positive future.

Inspired by Ed Mazria, founder of Architecture 2030, the conference attendees will combine forces on phasing out all fossil fuels by 2040 and will put together a zero-carbon building code. These collective actions are part of what it will take to solve the giant task ahead."

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...

Our most recent email update: "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." - George Price, a physician at the turn of the last century, famously called the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic a “destroyer and teacher.”  So, what about the COVID-19 pandemic?

Day 2 of CarbonPositive'20 started with a powerful presentation by Prashant Kapoor on embodied carbon, development, and tools in the global South, followed by packed sessions on concrete, steel, optimizing materials use and more. Just now, Kelly Alvarez Doran and Sierra Bainbridge of MASS Design Group gave a rich, fascinating and inspiring keynote on their carbon positive projects in Rwanda.
