The Carbon Neutral Design Project is a joint effort between members of SBSE, the AIA, and a private donor to provide practitioners, faculty, and students with the means to meet the 2030 Challenge.
The Carbon Neutral Design Project is a joint research effort between members of the Society of Building Science Educators (www.sbse.org), the American Institute of Architects (www.aia.org), and a private donor, the purpose of which is to provide practitioners, faculty, and students with the means to meet the 2030 Challenge (www.architecture2030.org), that is, to be able to design and construct buildings to a state of carbon neutrality by the year 2030.
The work included in this web resource is the result of a committed effort from educators and practitioners and is an attempt to define a working methodology for Carbon Neutral Design that will be of general benefit to the profession. IT IS A WORK IN PROGRESS, A BEGINNING. There are pieces of the site that are incomplete at present. These will be filled in over the next months. The Carbon Neutral Design Metrics are evolving. A CND Spreadsheet Tool is forthcoming. Please check back periodically for more content.
