Design Guidelines for Zero Waste Launch
October 18, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join us for the official launch of the Design Guidelines for Zero Waste, an initiative of the Center for Architecture, in collaboration with the AIA New York Committee on the Environment, Kiss + Cathcart Architects, ClosedLoops, and the Foodprint Group. The guidelines will help New York City achieve its OneNYC plan, released in April 2015, which outlined a bold goal of sending zero waste to landfills by 2030.
The Design Guidelines for Zero Waste have been developed for architects and building professionals to help New York City achieve its OneNYC plan. Released in April 2015, the plan outlined a bold goal of sending zero waste to landfills by 2030. Like the Active Design Guidelines, developed by city agencies in collaboration with AIA New York, with the appropriate dissemination, the principles of the Design Guidelines for Zero Waste, could become commonplace for developers and architects and could be required in city agency RFPs.
The guidelines team looked at lessons learned in other cities, reviewed in-depth case studies for multiple building types in NYC, and convened multidisciplinary workshops with a wide array of stakeholders during the first half of 2017, including architects, developers, consultants, city agencies, housing agencies, building managers, commercial carters, and equipment manufacturers.
Join us to learn more about how we plan to achieve these goals.
