Global Climate Action Summit: Building and Infrastructure Principles Event

This Building and Infrastructure Principles event is an invitation-only official side event in association with the Global Climate Action Summit (http://globalclimateactionsummit.org/), hosted by Governor Jerry Brown, that will be held in San Francisco September 11-14, 2018. 

The event is a partnership of the Science to Action Community, Waggonner & Ball, American Institute of Architects, Urban Land Institute, ARUP, CADMUS, & Susanne Moser Consulting.

The goal of this event is to begin to develop a set of principles or criteria for incorporating climate considerations, including at a minimum: evaluation of relevant climate projections for each project; consideration of social, economic, and environmental vulnerabilities related to climate and its cascading consequences, and how design solutions can mitigate greenhouse gas emissions or help manage risks associated with climate-related impacts.
