HED’s commitment to creating a positive impact starts at the beginning of every project.
Sustainable design is inextricably interwoven with HED’s core values; our commitment to positive impact extends to the health and well-being of inhabitants, surrounding communities, and the environment.
Together with our clients and industry partners, we integrate sustainable planning, design and construction practices into our standard processes, embracing the AIA Framework for Design. Excellence to create built environments that are responsive to known challenges and are resilient in the face of an uncertain future. We embrace reducing the use of non-renewable energy sources, supporting the conservation, stewardship and regeneration of natural resources and making informed, responsible and healthier design decisions that maximize positive impact for everyone.
With these values in mind we have pledged our organizational commitment to the AIA 2030 program to achieve carbon neutrality for the operational energy of all buildings we design by the year 2030.
