Statement from Payette on Paris Climate Withdrawal
At Payette, we don’t just design science buildings, we also believe in the research that comes out of them. That is why we stand with so many others such as the AIA and USGBC in believing the overwhelming evidence that human actions are changing our climate.
Buildings accounted for 47% of the US carbon emissions in 2010, and our typologies in healthcare and science are some of the most energy intensive building types. This is why it is critical for Payette to push to minimize the environmental impact of our portfolio. We will continue to strive to meet the targets of the AIA 2030 Commitment with the ultimate goal of achieving carbon neutrality for our work.
As stewards of this planet, we all need to do our part in supporting the goals of the Paris Climate Accord and reducing global carbon emissions to protect our world for future generations.
