SUSTAINABILITY | POINT OF VIEW
According to AIA, 80 percent of architects want to specify more
sustainable materials. Is this Pledge moving us in the right direction?
I believe that everyone wants to do the right thing. At this point, firms are looking
for transparency in the products that they are specifying. However, not everyone knows what they are looking for.
We need that easy button and we need manufacturers to talk about the sustainability and health components of
their products. They have a great opportunity to educate the designers and architects on the materials that they
are selling.
Some organizations are rewriting their specifications to ensure that products that are being specified are in
alignment with the sustainability and health goals. The Materials Pledge is about figuring out how we transform
our practice. We need all five pledge statements to be considered. The idea is that at some point projects will be
able integrate all five.
What specifics are involved in the Pledge?
This is the what each Pledge statement is about:
» Support human health by preferring products that support and foster life throughout their life cycles and seek
to eliminate the use of hazardous substances;
» Support social health & equity by preferring products from manufacturers that secure human rights in their
own operations and in their supply chains, positively impacting their workers and the communities where they
operate;
» Support ecosystem health by preferring products that support and regenerate the natural air, water, and
biological cycles of life through thoughtful supply chain management and restorative company practices;
» Support climate health by preferring products that reduce carbon emissions and ultimately sequester more
carbon than emitted;
» Support a circular economy by reusing and improving buildings and by designing for resiliency, adaptability,
disassembly, and reuse, aspiring to a zero-waste goal for global construction activities. ❙❘❚
