Arizona State University (ASU) achieved climate neutrality for scope 1 and 2 emissions in 2019, six years ahead of schedule, but the planet needs more. Join us to learn how ASU continues to improve its solutions by reinventing itself in place with deep green retrofits of existing campus buildings. Of note is the Hayden Library Reinvention, a LEED Platinum project which received multiple awards, including AIA COTE Top Ten, AIA/ALA Library Building Award, and SCUP/AIA-CAE Excellence in Architecture.
ASU is home to remarkable examples of campus architecture from every vintage of the last 100 years and has embraced deep green retrofits of prominent, mid-century buildings on the Tempe campus as a critical component of its climate neutrality strategy. Investments in existing buildings coupled with clean energy purchases have reduced and offset operational emissions while simultaneously preserving embodied carbon and campus character.
