AIA 2018 President Carl Elefante, FAIA to testify on 9/20 before Congress

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2018 President Carl Elefante, FAIA, will testify tomorrow at the U.S. House Energy & Commerce’s Subcommittee on Energy hearing, “Building a 100 Percent Clean Economy: Solutions for the U.S. Building Sector.”

Elefante is testifying on behalf of AIA based on his significant background and expertise in sustainable and resilient design strategies and strong understanding of needed improvements to U.S. building codes to achieve climate goals in the built environment.

AIA recently launched a landmark initiative to drive climate action among the architecture profession. As part of this effort, AIA is calling on architects around the world to support humanity’s collective call to climate action through an unrelenting commitment to sustainable and resilient design. Earlier this week, the Institute issued a statement, Where We Stand: Climate Action, detailing its initial path forward to support architects in making progress towards achieving net-zero emissions in the built environment by 2050.

The testimony will be broadcast live online tomorrow, September 20, at 9am ET.
