Building Energy Exchange and NYSERDA are hosting a Beyond Zero Series event highlighting firms with embedded values of reducing carbon and designing accessible, affordable buildings.

A growing number of architecture firms are incorporating climate goals into their practice, committing to tracking and reducing carbon in design and construction as part of the AIA 2030 Challenge and in line with NYC’s emissions targets. In this Beyond Zero series program, expert panelists will outline affordable housing and other projects that embody these values and discuss their lessons learned and adaptations in everyday practice as they’ve adopted a comprehensive, equitable approach to carbon reduction.
