Gwen Fuertes, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, provides an overview of Zero Net Carbon Design (ZNCD) design and how to incorporate best practices to reach aggressive sustainability goals in our built environment. Keith Hempel, FAIA, then explores examples of how high-performance design intrinsic to design excellence and discusses the AIA 2030 Commitment.
