About 2030

AIA 2030 Commitment

The AIA 2030 Commitment is a growing national initiative that provides a consistent, national framework with simple metrics and a standardized reporting format to help firms evaluate the impact design decisions have on an individual project's energy performance. The profession can’t meet radical building energy use reduction targets one project at a time and architects are embracing the challenge at hand by thinking differently about sustainable design. Will you join them?

Webinar for 2014 Reporting Now Available

The recent webinar on reporting data for 2014 is now available both on YouTube and as a downloadable PDF. It provides a general overview of the spreadsheet from AIA staff, as well as identifying some dos and don'ts of reporting this year. Anyone interested in a copy of the example spreadsheet from the webinar can contact us at 2030Commitment@aia.org.

Reporting Spreadsheet Update

In an effort to provide all signatory firms with ample time to report their data, we want to share that the AIA 2030 reporting spreadsheet is now the primary option for 2014 reporting. All firms are encouraged to download the spreadsheet and begin adding projects.

To make the data entry process as efficient as possible, we've developed these instructions for using the spreadsheet along with answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.

Please keep in mind that we will import all spreadsheets into the AIA 2030 DDx to take advantage of its enhanced analysis features when it is publicly launched. In order to ensure the smoothest possible transfer of data, firms must use the spreadsheet we've provided with no modifications. Customized spreadsheets will not be compatible with the AIA 2030 DDx.

To confirm that your completed spreadsheet is ready for submission, please check the Report to AIA tab on the spreadsheet prior to submitting. If the graphs are not displaying correctly, there is an error in the worksheet's data fields. For technical support or to submit your completed spreadsheet, please email 2030Commitment@aia.org.

The following project data is required for 2014 reporting:

   • Project Name/Identifier
   • Country
   • Project Design Phase
   • Zip Code (US Projects)
   • Building Use Type
   • Building Area
   • Energy Modeling Status
   • Energy Baseline (EUI)
   • Design Energy (pEUI)
   • Will Energy Use Data be Collected
   • LPD Baseline (Interiors Only Projects)
   • LPD (Interiors Only Projects)
   • Design Energy Code

If you have any thoughts, comments or visions for future reports, we encourage you to post to the 2030 Commitment Discussion Forum. The deadline for 2014 submissions is March 31, 2015. For additional information, email us at 2030Commitment@aia.org.

Join the ENERGY STAR Green Your Blueprint Challenge! Winners and projects will be honored at the 2015 AIA National Convention in Atlanta, GA.
