HED's National Sustainable Design Leader Appointed to COTE Leadership Group
HED is excited to share that National Sustainable Design Leader, Daniel Jaconetti has been appointed to the COTE® Leadership Group!
The AIA Committee on the Environment (COTE®) works to advance, disseminate, and advocate design practices that integrate built and natural systems and enhance both the design quality and environmental performance of the built environment. It consists of leaders from firms across the industry working together to advance the sustainability goals and design standards of the AIA.
COTE welcomes four new people to its Leadership Group this year, and a new Liaison Member. COTE asked each of these five COTE Community leader/volunteers to share a little bit about why they have sought to dedicate time to COTE.
Daniel says: “Mitigating the adverse effects of climate change may be the most critical endeavor currently facing humankind. Those of us in the building professions have an opportunity and responsibility that cannot be squandered. AIA and COTE have stepped up their game and galvanized around this charge to think about everything through a lens of responsibility and I felt that a great opportunity to make an impact with volunteer time would be through this community and the work of the COTE Leadership Group.”
