We commend San Antonio’s new mayor, Ron Nierenberg, and his leadership toward our City’s official support of the Paris Climate Accord. As a member firm of the American Institute of Architects, we are proud of the work done by AIA Committee on the Environment and its Advisory Group which continues to play an important “role in carbon drawdown through the design, construction, and operations of the built environment….”
