BRIEF – 3 April 2010 – United States based green building initiative Architecture 2030 is leading a campaign for the US Congress to push for reductions in building energy consumption.

The campaign aims to amend Section 241 of the Senate Energy Bill, which has been passed by the US Senate and currently includes building energy code updates, but which it says fall short of being effective.

Architecture 2030 wants Washington to push for a more urgent timeline for reducing building energy consumption, so that its targets are “achievable, cost effective and will dramatically reduce the energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions” of buildings across the United States.

Not restricted to United States interests, the Architecture 2030 campaign also asks the global architecture and building community to adopt  its targets for building sustainability.
