Holabird & Root Joins Architects Advocate

Since the launching of Architects Advocate for Action on Climate Change, Holabird & Root has joined forces with other leading Architecture firms in Chicago and around the country, to be a voice that supports meaningful legislation/policy to mitigate climate change.

Consisting of over 112 architecture and design firms, primarily from Chicago, that are speaking out publicly to end climate control, Architects Advocate is tasked with supporting healthy spaces and livable cities, and guide action towards responsible communities.

Within the last century, the U.S. has seen 14 out of the 15 warmest years on record. With the irreversible impacts of climate change overshadowing other environmental threats, this is the one issue where we can band together to have a positive impact on the built environment. Multiple studies have shown that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree: Climate-warming trends over the past century are due to human activities. With architects’ commitment to designing responsibly, we can secure the future for coming generations.

It is the goal of Holabird & Root to contribute positively to a healthy and sustainable built environment.
