We added Cunningham Heavin to the list. As architects working in the construction industry, we pledge to work harder with the support of our clients and industry colleagues to commission and design buildings, cities and infrastructure to be constantly regenerating and self-sustaining.
We will use our position to raise awareness of climate and biodiversities emergencies. Advocate for faster change in the construction industry, evaluate all new projects against contributing positively towards the mitigation of climate breakdown and encourage our clients to adopt this approach. We will explore the retention of existing buildings where possible, adopt more regenerative design principles in our studio and collaborate with our peers to mitigate and reduce construction waste.
We are currently developing our position and strategy on how we can directly impact the Climate and Biodiversity Emergency. Watch this space and in the meantime please add your name to the list.
