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 visit the Advocacy page to read more).

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.
