AIRAH's response to the USA leaving the Paris climate change agreement
Much has been written over the past couple
of days regarding the Paris climate accord. This global discussion
serves as a great opportunity to reinforce AIRAH’s commitment to create a more sustainable world.
AIRAH is committed to reducing the environmental impact of
buildings and associated services by making them more energy efficient.
In fact, the Paris climate accord makes the critical role of AIRAH
members in reducing the environmental impact more important than ever
before. AIRAH's vision is focused on creating “safe, sustainable,
healthy and efficient environments”.
The Institute continues to establish best-practice standards
for the design and operation of buildings that have lower environmental
impacts. AIRAH's advocacy position of these matters are clear (please

AIRAH's work is critically important, and via its dedicated
volunteers and committed staff the Institute will continue to work to a
more sustainable world.
