The American Institute of Architects (AIA) is welcoming National Community Renaissance (National CORE), one of the nation’s largest nonprofit developers of affordable housing, as the first developer to sign the AIA 2030 Commitment.
AIA’s 2030 Commitment provides architects, engineers—and now developers and owners—with the tools and resources necessary to change how communities design and develop with the goal of combatting the effects of climate change.
“We want to welcome National CORE as the first real estate developer to join AIA’s 2030 Commitment,” said AIA EVP/Chief Executive Officer Robert Ivy, FAIA. “We look forward to accelerating progress toward our net zero goals in partnership with National CORE and other real estate leaders in the future.”
As a signatory to the AIA 2030 Commitment, National CORE will work with their design teams to report energy performance data for their full portfolio of housing communities.
“We are excited to join the 2030 Commitment and are dedicated to delivering high-performing, sustainable projects with our architects,” said Steve PonTell, President and CEO of National CORE. “If we can meet the 2030 Commitment goals in our affordable housing communities, so can any owner-developer.”
