Hats off to Arup!

This is the first actual measurable goal I’ve seen come out of COP26 from our industry. ARUP is a direct competitor of ours, but I am very happy to see them make this commitment.

Maybe I am cynical, but seeing all these major architecture firms committing to “zero carbon” is so thin when we all know for a fact that they are neither commissioning nor performing wbLCAs on their projects. We all know the phrase, “you cannot improve what you do not measure”…
