Great presentation.

Presentation had a lot of very useful/good information but seemed like this should have been split up into several smaller presentations or been done over a longer period of time.

Sirma

A very good overview of the Architects' responsibilities and obligations to design smarter to enable the goal of Net Zero to be possible. Professional ethics goes far beyond an Architect's conduct with clients, governance and the law. In today's society we must choose to be leaders of ethical behavior in all areas of business, relationships with others, and especially the global environment which has suffered at an exponential rate due to the industrialization of modern society. Enjoyed the course, the message and the presenter was concise and clear in her delivery. Thank you.

Charles

Good program, all architects should listen and watch to keep these items fresh

David

great job

James

Overall a very good presentation with a lot of information. It could easily be broken into 2-3 courses

Brian

Very helpful subject that affects us all. Thank you.

Regina

Except for rushed presentation this was a good program

Dale

the quesitons and the program give some definitions that are hard to align. It would be helpful to see a quiz key after the quiz is taken.

John

Great material in the presentation, but the speaker went through it too fast to allow me to listen, take notes and/or read along for the hour. Please make a PDF of the presentation available.

Susan

Very interesting.

Claudia

Ok

Harold

This was not an ethics seminar but a climate change seminar. It was frustrating to have to sit through this. There are many more issues tied to ethics that are not climate related that used to be the basis for an ethics class.

Randall

all great new information I learned

Ethics and the Environment: An Architect’s Intent, Process, and Path to Net Zero

$40

The topic of ethics has never been more prevalent for today’s architects, especially in our obligation to the environment. With new data constantly published about the human toll on today’s world, the construction industry must take purposeful steps to not only reduce the environmental impact in the building process but also promote a sustainable design that will last for generations. This one-hour presentation will discuss ethics and the architect’s obligation to the environment. We’ll review what it means to meet Net-Zero goals and the outside influences, including cost, that may pose challenges.

Credits: 1 AIA HSW + 1 GBCI (USGBC/CAGBC) + 1 AIBD Primary + 1 AIBC Core LU + 1 AAA Structured LU + 1 OAA, OAQ, SAA, MAA, AAPEI, NWTAA

Length: 1h
