Regenerative Environments Now

Sustainability

Project-by-project and day-by-day, sustainability is a part of everything we do.

At Perkins+Will, sustainable design is a result of a creative and collaborative process that involves all our disciplines. We're not only reducing environmental impact, minimizing greenhouse gas emissions, reintegrating ecological systems and limiting exposure to harmful substances, but we're also helping to improve the environment through regenerative design.

Perkins+Will is also committed to exemplary workplace practices in our own business. Since the development of our Green Operations Plan in 2005, we have tracked and benchmarked our operational performance in terms of energy and water use as well as greenhouse gas emissions associated with travel and office operations. Every one of our offices that is renovated or constructed is designed to LEED Platinum standards and metered to monitor performance. As a carbon-neutral organization, we're offsetting our carbon emissions and investing in renewable energy technologies.

We are committed to supporting a diverse culture of sustainable design through applied research, internal education, public advocacy and outreach. We have developed tools such as the Transparency Site and the 2030 Estimating + Evaluation Tool to advance our design expertise and have made them publicly-available to expand our industry's knowledge of sustainable design best practices. Through this research and development of innovative tools, we offer our clients a range of sustainable advisory services.
