2016 Environmental Stewardship Summary
One of the most pressing challenges of this century is to mitigate climate change caused by greenhouse gas emissions from human activities. DLR Group’s sustainability report for 2016 reflects our progress toward meeting the 2030 Challenge. The information is extracted from the estimated operational energy consumption, energy production, and energy optimization of DLR Group’s design work in 2016. We intend to verify actual performance of our designs, and are excited to have nine buildings recognized by the New Buildings Institute in 2016 for exemplary energy performance based on actual data. While DLR Group’s average reduction targets of predicted energy use for our high-performance designs have consistently exceeded the national peer group average, we continue to aim for continual progress in meeting the 2030 Challenge reduction targets.
