Architects have great agency to address climate change. We specify the materials we use to build with, and have long-standing relationships with the construction supply chain. We also work with a wide range of services and industries, bringing together clients, suppliers of raw materials, and structural and services engineers. We are uniquely placed to champion an environmental agenda to both clients and other building specialists, widening the group of people working together to reduce whole-life carbon.
