Ed Mazria (Courtesy: Cannon Design & Jamey Stillings)Many of you will recall Ed Mazria’s presentation from Cannon Design’s 2012 Environmental Awareness Week which focused on his non-profit organization, Architecture 2030 and its mission to rapidly transform the U.S. and global Building Sector from the major contributor of greenhouse gas emissions to a central part of the solution to the climate change and energy crisis.

Recently, Mazria sat down with Next City to talk about the upcoming unveiling of a beta release for a new tool called the 2030 Palette. The free online platform aims to provide the building sector with a framework of best practices for creating more sustainable, low-carbon built environments. After a period of feedback, the Palette’s public launch is slated for this upcoming fall.

Take a moment to read through the article and you’ll find several of the important messages Mazria shared with us during his EAW presentation and also new information that pushes the organization closer to its goal. And, if you’re feeling nostalgic, here’s an interview our team conducted with Mazria prior to his presentation last year.
