Architecture 2030 is a US based, non-profit, non-partisan organization, founded by Edward Mazria. The Building Sector, based on stats from the US Energy Council, is the “major contributor of greenhouse gas emissions” but is also a “central part of the solution to the climate change, energy consumption, and economic crises.” This organizations goal is “to achieve a dramatic reduction in the climate-change-causing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of the Building Sector by changing the way buildings and developments are planned, designed and constructed.” Read more about the goals and targets of Architecture 2030.Architecture 2030 org.
