RAIC responds to United States withdrawal from global climate agreement

The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) affirms the continued commitment of the Canadian architecture community to designing a more sustainable world and making the goals of the 2015 Paris Agreement a reality.

“Each of us has a responsibility in our work and with our everyday choices to ensure a sustainable future,” says RAIC President-Elect Michael Cox, FRAIC. “The RAIC applauds and whole-heartedly endorses the American Institute of Architects’ commitment to continue to exercise that responsibility.”

The RAIC joins with architects around the world in supporting the American Institute of Architects’ declaration on the Paris Agreement, issued in response to the White House decision to withdraw the United States from the landmark Agreement.

The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada is the leading voice for excellence in the built environment in Canada. Representing about 5,000 members the RAIC advocates for excellence, works to demonstrate how design enhances the quality of life and promotes responsible architecture in addressing important issues of society.
