Architects Declare - 10 Practical Steps to Assist Practices to go Carbon Neutral
As part of World Green Building Week 2020 with the theme #ActOnClimate, Architects Declare Ireland are calling for collective action to change the current trajectory of disastrous levels of carbon emissions by 2030 of which buildings and their construction contributes 39%.
Together with graphic designer Brian Byrne from Lands Studio, AD Ireland have put together 10 practical steps to assist every practice to go carbon neutral by first focusing on their own workplace. It’s difficult to ask our clients to do more – build better and prepare for the future – if we aren’t doing it too.
The 10 practical steps are available to download as posters in various sizes using this link: drive.google.com. We recommend printing in high resolution for the best result.
