Who we are

The Committee on the Environment (COTE®) is an AIA Knowledge Community working for architects, allied professionals, and the public to achieve climate action and climate justice through design. We believe that design excellence is the foundation of a healthy, sustainable, and equitable future.

Resolution for Urgent and Sustained Climate Action 

09-10-2019 03:59 PM

Resolution 19-11: Resolution for Urgent and Sustained Climate Action, sponsored by Betsy del Monte, FAIA, and fifty members of the Institute passed with 4860 voting in favor, 312 voting against, and 28 abstaining. The new piece of business proposed that AIA prioritize and support urgent climate action to exponentially accelerate the “decarbonization” of buildings, the building sector, and the built environment. In addition to calling for revisions to AIA Public Policies and Position Statements, the resolution advocated that the Institute engage its full membership, clients, lawmakers, and communities in a multi-year education, practice, and advocacy strategy.
