DBR Engineering Consultants, Inc. (DBR) is excited to announce that we have signed on to The American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2030 Commitment program and its goal of carbon-neutral buildings by the year 2030. To meet this challenge, DBR will further the application of energy modeling and integrative process design in our projects.
The built environment and the places where we live, work, and play represent the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions, as well as the largest opportunity for making a positive impact in reducing building-related emissions. As engineers, we understand the need to exercise leadership in creating a sustainable built environment. We believe we must improve our profession’s practices and encourage our clients to join with us in advancing the course of the planet’s future.
“Together with our clients and many architecture firms, DBR took a step forward by adopting The AIA 2030 commitment,” states Eddy Santosa, Director of Sustainability. “To support this commitment, DBR has expanded our sustainability services beyond LEED consulting and Energy Modeling and will now provide one-stop service solutions to our clients.”
By signing The AIA 2030 Commitment, DBR acknowledges the critical need for accurate, consistent, and rigorous metrics related to actual building performance and will use this framework to further advance the green building industry and its impact on decreasing greenhouse gas emissions.
About the AIA 2030 Commitment
The mission of The AIA 2030 Commitment is to transform the practice of architecture in a way that is holistic, firm-wide, project-based, and data-driven, so that AIA and participating firms can prioritize energy performance and carbon reductions in the design towards carbon neutral buildings, developments, and major renovations by 2030.
