Each week more Australian architects take action on the climate and biodiversity emergency by signing the Architects Declare declaration and pledging action to: – Raise awareness of the climate and biodiversity emergencies and the urgent need for action amongst our clients and supply chains. – Advocate for faster change in our industry towards regenerative design practices and a higher Governmental funding priority to support this. – Establish climate and biodiversity mitigation principles as the key measure of our industry’s success: demonstrated through awards, prizes and listings. – Share knowledge and research to that end on an open source basis. – Evaluate all new projects against the aspiration to contribute positively to mitigating climate breakdown, and encourage our clients to adopt this approach. – Upgrade existing buildings for extended use as a more carbon efficient alternative to demolition and new build whenever there is a viable choice. – Include life cycle costing, whole life carbon modelling and post occupancy evaluation as part of our basic scope of work, to reduce both embodied and operational resource use. – Adopt more regenerative design principles in our studios, with the aim of designing architecture and urbanism that goes beyond the standard of net zero carbon in use. – Collaborate with engineers, contractors and clients to further reduce construction waste. – Accelerate the shift to low embodied carbon materials in all our work. – Minimise wasteful use of resources in architecture and urban planning, both in quantum and in detail. We hope that every Australian architectural practice will join us in making this commitment. #architectsdeclare_au #climateactionnow
