TRANSFORMING THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT FOR A NET ZERO FUTURE
The first full mass timber project in Texas, the net zero First United Bank branch utilizes materials that sequester carbon dioxide instead of emitting it.
ADDRESSING CLIMATE CHANGE IS THE MORAL AND BUSINESS IMPERATIVE OF OUR TIME.
Our portfolio is already designed to save over 17 million metric tons of CO2 from being emitted on a yearly basis. But there’s still so much more work to do — and it can’t be done without the help of our clients, colleagues, and industry. Our mission is to transform the built environment for a net zero future with every project, in every location, and for every person.

Transforming the Built Environment for a Net Carbon Future

Achieving zero carbon impact across our portfolio — and the broader design industry — represents an incredible opportunity to address mitigation and resiliency. As the largest design firm in the world, we are using the power of our scale and global reach to amplify the systemic progress necessary for consequential climate action.

We continue our commitment to the Gensler Cities Carbon Challenge (GC3) with a goal of a zero-carbon impact portfolio by 2030. This year’s Climate Action Through Design report shows solutions in action through a handful of our projects around the world.
