Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) is not merely a buzzword but a business imperative. Investors and Boards have tasked business leaders with creating and funding strategic business goals supported by a purpose-driven ethos from employees, partners, vendors, and customers to pursue sustainability missions.
The Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) sector is responsible for as much as 40 percent of global CO₂ emissions. Simultaneously, the industry can cement a values-based stance to design and build a better, sustainable future where the ecosystem can contribute to greening the economy and planet.
Companies are building sustainability programs involving their supply chains, designing, and constructing facilities that use renewable energy and leave a zero-carbon footprint. For example, Climate Pledge Arena in downtown Seattle opened late last year. Among other innovations, rainwater is harvested in a 15,000-gallon onsite cistern and used to resurface the ice on the hockey rink.
