Architecture 2030’s mission is to rapidly transform the global built environment from the major contributor of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to a central part of the solution to the climate crisis.

Buildings are responsible for almost half of all greenhouse gas emissions, a sobering fact for those in the construction and architecture industry.


Over 15 years ago, one architect broke with the profession to do something about it. Edward Mazria closed his architecture practice in 2002 to establish Architecture 2030, a not-for-profit aimed at reducing carbon emissions from buildings. Since then, the 

organization has grown into a force for good on the national and international stages.
