2010 Sustainable Design Survey

August 3, 2010

East Coast Green Keynote for Named One of Most Influential

The annual Design Futures Council “2010 Sustainable Design Survey” of 240 design industry leaders in the U.S. was released this month, ranking Architecture 2030 among the top three most effective organizations (USGBC, AIA, and Architecture 2030) advancing green building design and construction in the U.S. today.

The survey also rated Architecture 2030 first among industry leaders in ‘leadership and resource deployment’ to move sustainability issues forward in the U.S. and identified Edward Mazria, founder and CEO of Architecture 2030, as second among the nation’s leading ‘role models’ for green and sustainable design.

Industry leaders participating in the survey included architects (61%), engineers, landscape architects, interior designers, and planning and urban design professionals.

Such recognition by the architecture, planning, and design community is an indication of the ongoing success of Architecture 2030’s initiatives.

Transformation Underway
The 2030 Challenge is fundamentally changing the U.S. Building Sector

Seventy-three percent (73%) of the 30 largest Architecture / Engineering (A/E) firms, responsible for over $100 billion in construction annually, have now adopted and are implementing the 2030 Challenge. According to a recent poll of design industry leaders by the Design Futures Council, approximately forty percent (40%) of all U.S. architecture firms have adopted the Challenge.

The adoption of the 2030 Challenge by large A/E firms has global implications. Since most of these firms are multinational, the shift towards building to the Challenge carries important economic implications, representing a significant, stable global market for high-performance building materials, products, and on-site renewable energy systems.
