Architecture 2030 Challenge and the Paris Agreement w/ COTE
Andrew Lee, Zero Cities Project Manager with Architecture 2030, will present an update on Architecture 2030 and how the Paris agreement will impact our future.
A little over one year ago the Paris Agreement was signed by nearly 200 countries. This historic event forged an international commitment to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions, marking a historic opportunity for architects to lead the transition to a zero carbon built environment. Though as the political climate made major shifts in 2016, what does this mean for building design professionals now?
Andrew Lee of Architecture 2030 will speak about what the Paris Agreement means for the building design industry and the programs Architecture 2030 is undertaking to focus that effort.
Andrew Lee, LFA, LEED AP BD+C is a project manager for Architecture 2030. Currently Andrew leads the organization’s urban initiatives for zero net carbon buildings, including the coordination of key partnerships with the Carbon Neutral Cities Alliance, World Green Building Council, and national energy policy experts. Andrew has over 15 years of experience in green building design and construction, with specialization in research and technical consulting on net zero systems.
