Did you know clients and regulators expect architects to show climate readiness? And we aren’t talking about being informed; we’re referring to understanding how to mitigate risk in the built environment.
The rise in extreme weather conditions such as floods, wildfires, hurricanes, and heat waves has caused significant damage to many landmarks, properties, and lives.

How can you help?
By collaborating with experts and professionals who share an interest in climate action and the built environment.
