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

$10

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 two-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.
